Hello Jerry, you can set up Windows 10 as a part of a dual or multi-boot installation but you must boot from installation media and select the Custom option in Setup.

And you must install Windows 10 on a separate disk partition or physical drive as if you select the same partition that contains existing Windows version then you will lose access to the Windows installation. (Your existing data files and entire current Windows system files will be moved to the Windows.old folder.)

Windows 10 will add itself to the boot menu if you install it is separate volume on a system which is already having a previous version of Windows installed.
