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.
