Ubuntu recommends you install Windows first.

(This method does not work for computers with UEFI boot. In consequence, it won't work for pre-installed Windows 8 and some pre-installed with Windows 7.)

IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG?

Reinstall Grub Tutorial

Create a NTFS partition for Windows using Gparted

(sudo apt install gparted)

MAKE SURE TO BACKUP THE MBR!

Install Windows normally

Then boot into a LIVECD (try ubuntu without installing)

We need the handy-dandy Gparted again.

Mount the root partition inside the LiveCD.

Then, restore the MBR.

Now setup the grub to boot windows. :)
