What version of Windows 7 should I use with a new MacAir?

I want to install Windows 7 on a new Macbook Air using bootcamp. Apple told me I need a Windows 7 license that was bootable and compatible with Apple.

Can I buy an OEM version and how do I tell if it is bootable or compatible with Apple?
Am I stuck having to buy a retail version of Windows 7?

Thanks

You can use oem, you`re not gonna find a retail copy. All windows 7 install media is bootable, not sure why you`d ask that question.
