Welcome to AskUbuntu! Please take a look at the following question How can I install Ubuntu without removing Windows – Oyibo Oct 31 '12 at 9:28

That is the default behaviour of Ubuntu 12.10. During Ubuntu installation, simply select the option "Install alongside Windows" and Ubuntu will leave your windows partition alone and prompt you which OS to use on your next boot.
