    Just boot SuperGrubDisk2 https://www.supergrubdisk.org/super-grub2-disk/ in UEFI or Legacy (whatever you want to migrate into), then scan for and boot your system, and then from there you can just uninstall GRUB and install the right kind of GRUB you need for UEFI or Legacy boot.
    Maybe I explained myself wrong, now everything works fine and the messages are gone, I chose to install in legacy mode, because I read that my bios uefi has some bugs. However now all is well. A greeting.

      I meant that you can migrate the same Linux install from UEFI to Legacy boot without reinstalling.

      There is no need to reinstall the whole distro like you have to do with Windows (technically in Win10 there is a tool to do a live-upgrade from legacy to UEFI, but not the reverse).

        That wasn't the reason I had reinstalled, I reinstalled because I had to change hard disk.
