it... does... not.. matter... Windows lets you delete and format the drive the way it needs it to be, but fat w/ Master Boot Record (Windows partition table) in Disk Utility: partition: Advanced option.
Then pull all the other drives.
Pretend you have to start with raw drive, no OS, and DVD in hand.

Thank you very much. It Worked! When I had tried to install Win 7 before it wouldn't erase and reformat the disk in Mac extended. This time with the disk formatted as FAT w/Master Boot Win 7 was able to format it.
You've been very patient with me,

Does it slow down your system if you install windows on it? I just a new retina macbook pro? Would it be wise to install windows 7 on it? Can i then use all the windows related softwares on it that i would normally use on let's say my old Hp laptop made just for microsoft windows?
Thanks for answers.....

You dont' have a Mac Pro. This was about situation different 200% from yours.
Getting this moved to Boot Camp;
The MacBook Air under Windows doesn't support Turbo Boost for now.
Of course you can install Windows natively or in a VM. A VM would have to share memory and processors, that is why people dual boot and run Windows natively on its own partition.
