Xpack from msi

please help me fix this installed my search using msi version elasticsearch-7.10.2

Unexpected response code [405] from calling GET http://127.0.0.1:9200/_security/_authenticate?pretty
It doesn't look like the X-Pack security feature is enabled on this Elasticsearch node.
Please check if you have enabled X-Pack security in your elasticsearch.yml configuration file.

ERROR: X-Pack Security is disabled by configuration.

Did you look into that?

how to make them writable?

Did you start multiple nodes?
Did you check the directory permissions?
