For what it's worth...

The way i dual boot:
1. install and run EasyBCD;
2. shrink Windows partition to make room for Linux distro.
3. install Linux distro on that extra partition.
4. if Linux distro displeases me, i go back to EasyBCD in Windows to write MBR and then delete its partition.

Usually this works well with most Linux distros.

Thus, no need to backup Windows.
