One step of the installation process is preparing the hard disk. In that step you can answer to do a parallel installation besides the existing software, or you can choose "erase the whole disk". This should do you want.
The screen will look similar to this (wit MacOS instead of Windows of course):

Step for step. Make USB the first boot order, then restart.
If you have less than 2 GHz dual core processor and 4 GB of RAM.
I recommend Lubuntu 20.04 LTS 64bit https://lubuntu.me/downloads/

Can you help with this problem?
