It is properly formatted and I’ve done everything according to the installation guide. My bios does not have the csm option. Secure boot is turned off.

When I need Windows for work or want to use any other operating system, I prefer running it as a virtual machine (which actually works quite nicely from Parrot OS). So, I do not have any direct experience dual booting a Linux system. However, these articles might help:

Interestingly, the first begins: “One of the most confusing and intimidating parts of installing Linux for dual-booting with Windows is the disk partitioning required” (Watson, 2016). I myself have been struggling to run Alpine as a virtual machine for comparable reasons. I’ll figure it out eventually. Hope those articles help you do the same for your dual boot of Parrot with Windows.
