To reiterate what USAFRet is saying, take a peak at his signature one more time.

I highly recommend using virtual machines instead. Eliminate the risk of wrecking your system. Install VirtualBox, download your favorite Linux ISO, create a new VM, point the VM to the disk, install the OS. If you don't end up liking that flavor of Linux, delete it.

Yep....I have 6-8 VM's on tap, usually one or two running in the background.
Windows 10, a couple of flavors of Linux, WinServer, etc.
All these VMs live on a secondary drive.

And backups are absolutely necessary, no matter what you're doing. Even just pressing the power button...;)
