In this case, the problem is an old one and was solved back when LILO was common and GRUB was new: we just do not run into it as often these days. I must agree with you about one thing: installing windows first, then linux (which is smart enough to notice and allow for Windows) and its (smarter) boot loader is DEFINATELY the EASIER way!
Oh, please don't misunderstand. I didn't claim it couldn't be done, but merely said that I have not seen it work that way. I didn't doubt anyone's word, since I've done my fair share of things that shouldn't be possible either.

Also, if you're going to try to answer the OP's question, how about actually telling them some useful information about it, rather than just saying "yes, you can do it".
Sorry for that i mean you can create a windows partition in a certain hard drive using Linux Live Cd.

For the OP wants to know, the best solution is to install windows in linux is by using virtualbox.
