Yes, surely. Just preserve the windows partition in your disk_config
file using the keyword "perserve". You can also define a mount point
for this partition, eg. /win. Then, the rest of the disk can be
partitioned noninteractively ! But don't forget to make a backup of
your windows partition. I never tested this with a windows partition.

This is not better ! A non interactive installation is always the best.
