Linux needs certain BIOS settings flipped: SATA Operation to AHCI, Secure Boot Disabled

And also, since extracting a windows key is useful even on a Linux laptop, as then you can use it for a VM on that machine:

On Linux, try running "sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/MSDM | tail -c 32 | xargs -0 echo" It may print the original key of your Windows install.

And finally, for the same reason, how to shrink your windows install away to a mere sliver so that most space can be used by a linux install:

Just right click on “My Computer”, choose “Manage”, and you will get a popup window, choose “Disk Management” in the left navigation bar. And then, your hard disk condition will show as follow. Then you need to right click on the partition which you want to shrink, and choose “Shrink Volume”.
