It seems to me you have confused your system by setting the UEFI BIOS to "Legacy" which understands MBR partitions, but creating EFI partitions which Legacy does not understand. I think you need to choose.

Either

1) use EFI bios setting and partitions and employ eLilo or grub-efi for any Linux

or

2) use Legacy Bios and Partitions and legacy Lilo and Grub or Grub2


Makes sense. I ended up even reinstalling Windows yesterday as a bit of housecleaning and msinfo32 now shows it as UEFI. When I boot into the Mint live USB and open terminal to check how it booted up I get this:
Code:
mint@mint ~ $ dmesg | grep "EFI v"
[    0.000000] efi: EFI v2.31 by American Megatrends
mint@mint ~ $


So with Windows set properly, and booting from Linux Mint getting this outcome, I should be able to install Slackware and use ELILO at the end of the install and everything should work. I think. This newfangled UEFI stuff is..interesting.

Now with EFI partitions and settings, where should ELILO be installed?

I have yet to "upgrade" to UEFI completely, still preferring Legacy Mode, so I have to defer and refer you to Slackdocs once more. This is quite thorough and well described so should be fairly easy to accomplish. See Slack Docs UEFI + eLilo - HERE
