Don't know anything about Apple hardware. But have heard of Boot Camp regarding Macs. And using that to run flavors of Windows on Macs.

Take a look here: Frequently Asked Questions about installing Windows 7 with Boot Camp

@CodeSmasha

 

That tutorial is 5 years old.

 

From what I've gathered, there are different versions 

of Boot Camp for different model years of Macbook Air's.

 

The latest version off a Macbook Air that supported Windows 7 

per the Apple site was an early 2014 Macbook Air.

 

What I need to know is if anyone knows if Windows 7 

Ultimate 64-bit can be loaded into a brand-new, 

latest version, 2015 Macbook Air.

 

Would appreciate any advice based upon experience with 

this issue in the last 6 months.

 

Many thanks!  :-)
