Thanks Andrew.
So, It is easier to install debian on UEFI system?

If UEFI is implemented in a way that is not too broken, it should be as easy as it was with
the old style of BIOS.

With Dell systems you would normally start hitting the 'F12' key when you see the Dell Logo. Maybe sooner if the display is a little slow to light up. Should get you the boot menu that has
the option to go to the UEFI setup.

In Windows hold down the Windows key and hit 'R' to bring up the run box, then type 'diskmgmt.msc' and hit 'Enter' to bring of the disk management, from there you should
be able to shrink the Windows partition.

If you go to the Dell web site, go to support, and type in the service tag number that's on your machine, Dell may have some Linux related support information for your model. They may only provide that for models they actually ship with Linux, but it doesn't hurt to look.
