Making a dual-boot system is easy especially if you’ll be installing different versions of Microsoft Windows. But if the other one is not a Microsoft Windows operating system like Linux, it is also possible. Before making a dual-boot system between Microsoft Windows and Linux, make sure Microsoft Windows is installed first or is already installed on the computer.

Don’t attempt to install Linux first followed by Microsoft Windows because that will not work. Create another partition on your hard drive for Linux. Make the size of the new partition around 10 GB or higher. For creating a new partition in your hard drive, you can use EaseUS Partition Master Free. It supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

When the new partition is created, you may now start installing Linux. Insert your Linux setup CD in the CD/DVD drive then restart the computer. Boot your computer from the CD/DVD drive to start the Linux installation. Follow the instructions to install Linux. When you are prompted to select the partition where to install Linux, select the new partition you created and then continue with the Linux installation until it is complete.

In case you don’t have a Linux setup CD, you can download a disc image from Download Ubuntu Desktop and then burn it on a blank DVD disc.
