Windows 7 onto Macbook Pro 10.7.2

I have had my Macbook pro for a few months now and decided I want to install windows 7.
I have read various guides on the web and I'm a little confused.
Some say I need the apple installation disc after I install windows. The issue is Apple don't provide any media discs when you buy a macbook.
Do I need the apple installation disc?? I've tried to re-download os x from the app store but I can't as it shows 'installed' and the install program is not in my 'apps'.
Any ideas guys?? Do I need the os x disc??

G'day and welcome to the forums.
Go into Bootcamp Assistant and you will be able to download drivers etc and burn to a CD. After installing Windows 7 pop the CD in and it will auto.exe. Make sure you print the guidelines and read them before starting.Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
