You should investigate how windows 7 did partitions, because it has a
 different partitioner; you can finish with all partitions ending at the
 middle of cylinders; Debian should be installed, but in short time
 both OSs could become unstable. .

And, yes, it is possible to create windows 7 recovery DVDs, many times
as you wanted.
