I'm not a mac person but I have heard of a thing called boot camp which allows you to run Windows on a mac. But to me it sounded like you have the mac software installed first and then you install the boot camp and that allwows you to install Winows.

"go to an apple store."

LOL... Why bother to put osx on it again? Because a little fairy told you it was better and a magical experience? Yet you just happened to need windows 7. OMG, I'm in stitches! "the mac didn't come with a boot cd", even funnier. Of course apple wants to meet you at that "genius bar".
