Hello I have a aliwnware auora r9 and I'm trying to change to legacy mode so I can dual boot linux and the option seems to be greyed out in my bios boot settings, I have secure boot disabled

Once you disable secure boot does it open up any more options, like Load Legacy Option ROM and Boot List Option?

Can you post some screenshots?

I'm no expert on the newer machines but maybe Dell have locked out Legacy

Not letting me past screen shots but are there settings I have to change to enable legacy?

I believe that usually you disable secure boot, enable the Legacy ROM and then change the Boot list option from UEFI to Legacy. Also take a look at your options in the Boot Menu - F12 on startup

You may have to re-install Windows though but I'm not 100% sure. I had to do this when going from Legacy to UEFI as the drives aren't set up right and have to be formatted. This may not be the same going the other way though.
