IF the disk is big enough.

I tried installing openSUSE on a 40GB windows 10 system (15GB used) 

40Gb is not even enough for Windows 10, at the first update is will hard 
crash (it did for me, -> replace hardware)

This windows10 machine is running for quite some years (at least 3), it 
gets updated regularly and I use it once per year to do my tax. And I 
use (a clone of) it to test dual-boot installations.

The used space on the disk is less than 15GB, so there is enough space 
left, so 40GB is plenty of space for my application.

I believe you, but windows 11 minimum disk space is 64GB. I think windows 10 had 32GB, so you even had 8GB to spare :) 

I have Win 11 in 32 gb with it taking only 19 gb  with 13 gb free (Virtualbox VM) - It can be done in 32 gb/

Didn’t mean it’s not possible, it’s just from their minimum requirement page [1].
