also I think it is better to install windows 7 with a virtual machine on macbook if you don't need all hardware performance

You don't say what version of OS X you have, but assuming something newer like Snow Leopard, preferably, you can use Apples; Bootcamp utility to do this for you.  Boot camp is an Apple utility that will partition your hard disk and then you can boot from the Windows 7 dick and install Windows normally.

This Apple article will answer some questions and the embedded link will show you how:

Also, I do agree with the other expert, unless you need the power of addressing the hardware directly. running Windows 7 in a virtual machine like with Parallels or VMWare Fusion may be a better choice.
