Dual boot Windows/Linux? Piece of piss.

Install Windows first. Partition disk so that it has a minimum of two spare partitions for Linux and Linux Swap, or a number more if you want to separate out /var /opt /tmp /usr and /home.

Boot Linux, change the partition ids, install GRUB or GRUB-efi at the end, then add in the Windows partition to the installer. LILO is pretty easy to get working too, but if you're running Salix be warned it always installs it on the first hard drive which may not be what you want..

Alternatively, you can do this the other way by setting up a boot menu in Windows - EasyBCD is the simplest method, but the Windows 10 boot menu is rather shite, and basically consists of booting most of Windows before choosing the OS to boot.
