Yes. Debian Edu is a subset of Debian aimed at setting up a network for 
schools or similar organisations; the installer sports a profile choice 
page, and all needed information is gathered at the beginning of an 
installation. See the projects landing page: 
https://blends.debian.org/edu/ containing links to all needed 
resources, including the manual.

I guess I don't understand your intention. Installing Debian Edu 
together with other distributions like you tried it is only supposed to 
work if you'd choose the 'Standalone' profile, see the manual.

All these issues seem to indicate that your choice on the profile page 
has been something else than 'Standalone'.

Please read the manual.
