    I'm trying to install a torrent of Windows 7 onto a Mac OS X. A friend I was talking to has both on his computer, and says that all I have to do is press option while the computer starts-- which did not work, needless to say. Do I need to take an extra step to install it, and if so, how do I do that?

    tl;dr -- I DON'T SPEAK MAC

    Yep, you need to use the Bootcamp Assistant which will partition the hard drives and reboot the Mac ready to boot from the Windows 7 Install Disc :)
