comment How can a share storage between Linux, Windows, and Mac
How to do this for the entire drive will depend on the partitions in that drive. If you have multiple partitions, you have to handle them separately. If you have a single partition mounted as / then changing the permission for that partition and all the system sub folders will make the Ubuntu system unbootable. It is not a good idea to let guests read and write to your system folder.

comment Grub rescue no such device error
bootrec /fixmbr will replace GRUB in the MBR with the default bootloader for Windows. It won't do anything to the BIOS. Nothing can bypass BIOS. It lives in a chip on the motherboard (not in hard disk) and the computer loads it when you turn it on. You are right. Messing with BIOS is risky. If you try to update the BIOS with the wrong version (not meant for your computer) it can turn into a brick / paperweight. Same thing can happen if power goes off in the middle of a BIOS update.

This is not an answer. See askubuntu.com/questions/310180/… for an example of the question about Windows and Linux machine.

Try booting from hard drive and wait a few minutes. Ubuntu should boot after some time. If this happens, follow the answer askubuntu.com/questions/178614/… to fix GRUB.

The black screen has probably nothing to do with the hard drive. Possible duplicate of My computer boots to a black screen what options do I have to fix it?

It should be recognized without any need for drivers. Click on the WiFi icon on top right corner (an funnel/cone icon). Make sure WiFi is enabled. Try turning the computer off, plug in the adapter and then turning it on. Please update your question above with additional information if it still does not work.
