Squircle's answer and various comments are good; however, I want to address a few points....
I don't have the CSM mode option in my UEFI. Furthermore, I can't and don't want to convert my hard drive form MBR to GPT
It is possible to convert from MBR to GPT without losing data. My own GPT fdisk (
gdisk) program can do this. I hear that some third-party Windows tools can do it, too, but I don't know the details. Microsoft's own tools cannot do this, though, so do not try to use them for the task. Note that MBR-to-GPT conversion is very simple compared to something like converting from one filesystem to another, so the risk is low -- but not zero. No operation that involves writing to data structures as sensitive as a partition table is zero-risk.
You say you "don't want" to convert to GPT, but you don't say why. If it's simply the hassle or risk of conversion, that's dwarfed by follow-on problems of the near-complete lack of support you'll face by using MBR. (I am, however, assuming that you have or can create adequate backups. If that's incorrect, FIX THAT PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY! Backups are NOT a luxury!) If, like some people, you're comfortable with MBR and just don't see a need to change to some [crotchety old-man voice]new-fangled thingamajig[/crotchty old-man voice], then I recommend you shed your biases. GPT offers real advantages over MBR. Most of them are minor, but if you must boot in EFI mode, the fact that GPT is the standard for EFI-mode booting is not a minor advantage; it's a major one.
Windows (uniquely) requires GPT to use EFI
My understanding is that this is a requirement of the Windows installer, but it's possible to get Windows to boot in EFI mode from an MBR disk by using various tricks, like converting from GPT to MBR after installing the OS, or by replacing a BIOS-mode boot loader with an EFI-mode boot loader without changing the partition table type. That said, my knowledge of precisely how best to achieve this goal is foggy, since I've only read about it; I've never done it myself. I've read about this only once or twice in several years, so this is not something that's done very often.
Can the EFI system partition be a logical partition ?
In theory, it shouldn't matter. In practice, I don't know. Booting in EFI mode from an MBR disk is such a corner case that there's a small but non-negligible chance that literally nobody in the world has tried using an MBR logical partition as an ESP. Certainly I haven't tried it. Please keep this in mind if you decide to pursue booting in EFI mode from an MBR disk -- your odds of getting expert (or even advanced amateur) help drop to near zero should you run into problems.
Overall, my recommendation is to look into MBR-to-GPT conversion tools. Chances are you'll be able to convert from MBR to GPT without trouble. The result will be less likely to cause problems than trying to boot in EFI mode from an MBR disk. You should, however, back up before doing this. That would be my advice even without an MBR-to-GPT conversion in the picture, though; mucking with boot loaders can be as risky as mucking with partition tables, so trying that without a backup is inadvisable, too.
