    You say you weren't successful - what exactly went wrong?

    How can you install it? By using Bootcamp.

    That said, I have a feeling Apple doesn't support anything lower than Windows 8 on the current generation of MacBooks. That and Windows 7's HiDPI support leaves much to be desired.

    It's not going to go well, because:

    1. Haswell and later Macs will install Windows in UEFI by default, something which Windows 7 doesn't support (without a lot of tweaking).

    2. Windows 7 does not support HiDPI properly.
