    hello friend,

    yes it is possible to dual boot with windows OS and chrome OS.

    the link will take you the tutorial of how to Dual Boot Chromium OS with Windows.

    http://techpp.com/2011/10/11/how-to-...-with-windows/

    here are few steps , that you take care before dual booting:

    1. backup all your files and important folders in windows in some external hardware, in case the system crashes because of some error.

    2. Chromium OS,doesn't run well on every machine . On some machines, it runs very slow, and may have other issues with things like the trackpad, webcam, or Wi-Fi.

    3. you can't burn Chromium OS to a CD,the only way to test it out natively or install it is to use a USB thumb drive. If your computer doesn't support booting from a flash drive, you can boot from the Plop Boot Manager Live CD and then boot to the USB stick from there.

    4. you also need a working Linux live CD or installation. You'll only need this if you want to dual boot your netbook with Chromium OS, so you can partition your drives and install a bootloader (since Chromium OS does not have an actual installer built in that does these things). If you don't have one, just get a Ubuntu live CD.

    Hello friend,

    Yes it is possible,

    All you need to do is just download and install dual boot supported software which is widely available on net.
    Then you can directly install OS through Windows.
    OR
    Without this software you can install OS in other drive.

    All the best
