Boot Windows 10 in Legacy Mode

Hello,

I installed Fedora 26 from USB on a laptop winth Windows 10 already installed (I assume in UEFI Mode) after disabling UEFI from the BIOS menu and booting in Legacy Mode.
I followed the instructions and installed GRUB2.
After I rebboted into Fedora, I edited /etc/grub.d/40_custom to include the following entry:

menuentry "Windows 10" --class windows --class os {
insmod ntfs
search --no-floppy --set=root --fs-uuid 5E64165E6416396B
ntldr /bootmgr
}

When I reboot, Windows 10 appears in the GRUB menu but when I choose it I get this error message:

file /bootmgr not found

How should I proceed to boot Windows 10 with GRUB?

I include the following information, hoping it would be helpful.
