You might be linux beginner and I don't recommend you dual boot setup setup as this is somehow "advanced" setup. Check this thread also.

I'm sorry but I don't agree, I've done dual boots since my very first Linux install, using the advanced option on the partitioner and it is not hard.

@ aniee7
did you check the md5sum of the ISO before burning it to disk?

I'd agree with doing an md5checksum as that could be the source of the error. Windows is probably still there. Have you tried mounting the windows partition(s) to check? Install what packages from the internet? You should download software from the distribution repositories and probably best to use YaST.
