Is there any way to install in the remaining free space or in existing partition without using the resizing option.

ofcourse the size of partition or free space being more than or equal to required size.

this way the file system will be intact and would not require any restoration if something goes wrong I guess.

When you say free space if you mean a un-formatted partition basically yes. But the un-formatted space must be large enough and you want to know about the booting program if your trying to dual-boot.

1. remaining unused free space inside a partition - NO
2. unallocated space on the disk not belonging to any partition - YES (unless you already have 4 partitions on the disk)
3. in place of existing partition - YES (you can delete the existing partition after copying any data you need from it, that will make unallocated space in its place, after that it's the same as option 2)
