It is a bit tricky. Once you install Windows alongside with Linux (or vice versa) you will mess up GRUB. So, the way I do it, and it is REALLY EASY, is: 1- Install the OS that you want. Don't mind GRUB for now. Install as many Windows as you want, as many Linux as you want (I have elementary and 3 Windows) 2- After the installation, boot ubuntu/elementary ...

OK, so the problem is with GRUB. It didn't installed properly during the installation. Why can't you see Linux partitions inside of Windows? Windows does not support ext4 out of the box. ext4 is the most popular file system for Linux. However, you can see your partitions by installing some third party software (not gonna suggest one of them, but you have ...

WinUSB can do that. It is a bit buggy but it gets the job done. UNetBootin used to be able to do it too, but I'm not sure if it still works. If both these options don't work, you could install a Windows virtual machine and create the ISO from there. Microsoft profides free Windows VM ISO's for 90 days.

I can't speak to your specific issues, but Windows driver issues made me switch to elementary OS. I went from several major, unresolvable issues to just a few minor annoyances without needing to do anything special.

Yes. The elementary OS installation instructions are available here. I recommend using Balena Etcher to flash the ISO on to the USB.

Select the USB drive to boot the elementary OS installer. The ...

Of course it is possible Niklas and that too without any trouble., but since this is very newbie question, I would advise you to look into and understand the differences that all linux based distributions have from mainstream Windows so that your expectations are set accordingly. Elementary OS does make it really easy to use though!
