It has to be on separate partitions to be able to dual boot.

It can be on the same hard drive, but within that hard drive it is separated with partitions. If you boot up your OS disc, preferably Windows, you will see Partitioned Space and Unpartitioned Space (which is below). You choose the amount of size that you want for each partition.

Don't be.

Just remember to calculate the amount of space you need for your Dual Boot.
Once done correctly, when it boots, it will ask you to choose the OS you want to boot up with.
