That is what you want, but it will assume you know enough to make the
partitions you want, set the type as needed and tell them where to be
mounted.  /, /home, /boot, swap ... assuming you want those.

Of you want to dual boot, then just shrink the Windows disk use to be
small enough for Linux to be installed, then use the "manual"
partitioning at that same screen.  Why is it this hard?  Because the
default setup since Win8 has had a few disk partition settings that
aren't friendly to Linux (fastboot, hibernation). These need to be
disabled and a reboot done so the NTFS file systems are actually closed
first. Linux won't touch an "open" file system.
