@ Ihorlaitan : You should create a new thread mate.

However, when installing both Windows and Linux you have the option to create new partitions.
Install Linux first, then Windows.

Google a few times... there's plenty of websites that can show you how (which is better than having someone write it up for you) - Why ask, and then wait an indeterminate amount of time for a response... when Google has all the answers. :P

Google: "install windows and linux"

Note: Haven't checked the links contents much... just pasted based on context of the link title and summary. First 2 are OK, the 3rd just has a few items that might be interesting.

I have taken your post, and the reply to it, and given them their own thread.

In the future, please create your own new thread for your question if you have not been able to find the answer in any existing threads, rather than posting your question onto someone else's thread. This keeps each member's issue separate, and makes it easier for other members to help you.

Thanks, & kind regards!
