Good day sir, in order to perform this, you must first have windows 7 installed, never install OS X first.

However, if you had installed OSX, and have trouble installing windows 7 later due to the fact Windows 7 doesn't install in GPT Hard drives :

1.On the screen that says "Choose destination to install windows 7", press Shift + F10
2.This should bring up a command prompt, type in "Diskpart"
3.Type in "list disk" to see the list of Hard disks
4.Type in "select disk X" where X is the number of your HDD.
5.Type in "clear"
Note : This will wipe out your entire HDD
6.Close CMD and refresh, make at least 2 partitions, and windows will automatically add one more(100MB, system reserve)

Now, when you had installed windows 7, you need to get Chameleon Windows Installer :

Go to Start -> Computer(Right click) -> Manage -> Disk Management -> Find the hidden 100mb system reserve(right click) -> Assign Letter

Run the chameleon installer, wait till everything is successful, then restart.

Before your system boots up, plug in the USB stick containing OSX(I assumed that you had already know how to install OSX SL into this machine)

Windows bootloader will give you an option to choose between Windows 7 or Chameleon, choose Chameleon, then your USB drive.

Install OSX from USB. Ta da!
