    I've seen a billion people having Windows 7 on their MacBook Airs. Anyone knows how to do it? It has no DVD drive, which is the biggest headache.

    And copy pasting files to a USB won't make it bootable.

    Get the iso of Windows 7, run boot camp assistant and choose the option to make a windows 7 USB.

    If you have a WIn7 DVD, you can simply plug in an external DVD USB drive and install from there. This is how I did it on my MBA. Worked flawlessly, just as if I was using an internal/built in DVD drive.
