Windows 7: Installing Zorin 9 on Windows Seven drive

I do not use the term "alongside" for that reason. Another OS must always be in another partition as it can't be joined with an existing OS partition.

If you want to try booting the Linux distro using Windows Boot Menu then I gave you the steps. But if it's working okay using GRUB then you can certainly leave it. We got in the habit here of advising booting Linux using WIndows Menu when GRUB1 corrupted countless Windows installs. It isn't regularly reported now.
