Hello EveryOne Over Here....;);)
I want a solution from you guys, the title says it.
Laptop :- ASUS R558UQ
Specifications :- i5 - 7th Gen, Nvidia 940mX, 1TB HDD

I have Linux Mint 18.3 installed as my primary OS, I had no Win10 in DualBoot,
But, recently, I want to Install Windows 10 as a Secondary OS(DualBoot), literally Dualbooting Windows Over Linux...
because I dont want to lose my data as of now..!!
Thanks...

I dont have much experience with linux, but i guess you could use GParted to make a new partition from your unused space, and install windows over it. But i guess its not as easy as it sounds. It would have been easier if Windows was installed first as installing windows now my have side-effect on Mint's GRUB.
