Mint Linux can be installed alongside Windows or it can erase Windows during the install.

To quote from the manual:

in the next screen you can assign your entire hard drive to Linux Mint or install it
alongside other operating systems. Alternatively, you can also define and assign the partitions manually.
-
If you choose to use the entire disk, its content will be erased and Linux Mint will
be installed as the only operating system on your computer.
