    Definitely. You will need to "Shrink" windows, install Linux next to it, and either allow grub/burg to be the boot loader or let the Windows boot loader remain in control.

    Yes, but if you resize the Windows partition windows will break. You need some other space or another HDD to install it to, or just get rid of windows all together.

    I reasized my friends windows partition down 500 Gbs, to make room for linux, and it broke windows, wasn't my intention, but its good that that worthless waist of space called windows isnt there anymore.
