I think so, never used nor seen one. I think it will attach to the optical drive so will stick out some.

1. Download the correct version of the Windows 7 ISO from this location
2. Write it to a 4GB USB flash drive using this tool.
3. Boot from the USB flash drive (place it in 1st boot order in BIOS), and install Windows as you usually would.

Done.
