    Default I want to run Wndows 7 on Mac Book Air

    Hi there, not sure if this is best place for this question..but here goes...
    I am wanting to run Windows on MB Air with Parallels. I do not have a copy(disk/usb) of Windows 7 to install. I have tried twice now to import from windows pc, but each time it stops after approx 30-40 mins saying there is an error or fault...no more info given.
    I was wondering if anyone could help me with a copy windows 7.
    I am still relatively new to Macs, so still learning. I have found a few you tube videos of how to set up Parallels, but I am getting stuck at the same step each time..that is importing windows from pc.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    You would probably need to purchase a new full version of Windows 7 from a retailer and install that. You cannot simply copy windows from a PC.
