You should be able to move forward after choosing the Manual option by hitting Next, which should open a UI to do your own disk formatting. Once there you should be able to create new partitions in the 'free space'. If you can get that far, you have to decide how you want to partition the disk. Personally I use the following scheme which contains 4 ...

While dual booting is a useful concept to allow you to use both Windows and Linux on the same machine, the benefits of dual booting Linux are more subtle. The boot process in Linux typically involves using a boot loader to load a kernel and ram disk which eventually mounts the root file system and lets you do things. Different distros have different kernels, ...

This scheme is certainly workable. You are right, the best solution is to transform your current layout as little as it is possible. If you don't ask Arch Linux to install his Grub bootloader, you'll have to run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg in Ubuntu (if you have os-prober installed, it will find your Arch installation and update all the config ...

run the command xrandr It will give you list of available resolution. Choose any one of them and execute the command xrandr -s <choosen_resolution> e.g. "xrandr -s 1024x768" Though, this command will work till X-session last. This is not reboot persistent.

When you partition your hard drive to prepare for the install, just shrink the Macintosh HD partition and leave several gigabytes of free space (you may need to create a partition and change the format to "free space"). Elementary OS will format and utilize this free space while itself allowing you to install it alongside OS X.

I guess you have GPT table and Kali can't manage them while installation. If you use parted /dev/sda print you'd see all of your partitions. To fix it, you should wait Kali fixes its installer (or maybe there are some patch/tricks available, I don't know Kali)

Your partition table looks OK, but it's a bit odd. In particular, most partitioning tools put a data structure known as an Extended Boot Record (EBR) in the sector immediately preceding the logical partition it describes. In your case, though, there's no gap between your logical partitions 5 and 6, so your partition 6's EBR must be located somewhere else. ...

Visualization is usually a better choice the "two desktops". But that may no always be true. First you must determine if what you can do can be virtualized. Office products and other such low load things should be just fine. High CPU tasks usually work fine. High ram tasks are usually ok, but could be a problem if you don't have the over head to run both ...
