Linux man 9.1 actually has 3 partitons. When you create your partitons. Create one partiton and leave the other part as "Free Space". When you install Linux, linux will create 3 partitons from this free space.
Linux can see a Windows partiton.
But Windows cannot see a the Linux parttions. Although within Windows you can see the three linux partitons. But not what is on them.
Drivers from linux and windows are different.
So install Windows First...Install all your drivers and programs.
Then install linux. When yoiu install Linux be careful as you can wipe the whole drive.
When you install Linux hopefully it will pick all your hardware up.
