I have heard that it takes 7gb to install Windows 7 on a computer. I have a Mac Mini and when I purchased the computer it came with 2gb. How can I install Windows 7 Pro on my Mac Mini in a boot camp on Mac Mountain Lion?

I think you're confused. It means 7GB of hard drive space, not RAM. 2GB of RAM is perfectly fine.

Your Mac Mini came with 2GB of RAM, not Hard drive space. It probably has about 250GB of Hard Drive space.

You will definitely need WAY more than 7 GB of space in order to install anything besides windows 7...
