This video shows you step by step how to wipe OS X Lion from your 2011 Macbook Air and install Windows 7.

I used the 64-bit Professional version and everything works perfectly! Everything is super responsive and smooth, and it's perfect for such a light-weight notebook with very good battery life (up to 5 and a half hours for browsing with WiFi and Bluetooth on, I've discovered with mine).

FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T BE BOTHERED READING ALL THE COMMENTS BELOW BEFORE POSTING:

* There were NO Ultrabooks running Windows 7 available at the time this device was released in Australia. Sure, it cost a little extra but the build quality and battery life more than made up for it. I still use it and am very happy with it - it has never given any trouble.

* I prefer using Windows on it, nothing else. Not Linux, not Mac OS. Live with it. I don't rub into people's faces how Apple jumped from Motorola to Intel processors and say "Oh, how dare they - Intel processors belong to Microsoft!". Please don't be childish and immature when responding...

* MAC OS is pretty much only used in the Magazine Publishing / Graphics Design / Photographics industries here in Australia. Despite what Mac fans say, it really isn't that compatible with anything else over here and you DON'T see many workplaces that actually use them. Please don't argue this point with me.
