My current laptop is not my own, and when I got it, I didn't want to
mess with the partitioning. So I made some space using gparted running
from a LiveCD (you get more space that way, but defragment first),
installed Arch there, used GRUB (legacy, but any would do) on the
partition, and booted using Windows bootloader :) [1]
