i want to install windows on mac and when i search i found that there is a program called Parallels Desktop to install windows on mac but i want it on the laptop not on the program does it work? or there is another anyway to install it on mac..??

While not theoretically impossible, its certainly not easy since the firmware in an Apple machine is very different. It might be questionably legal to do so and could leave you with a nonfunctioning or partially-functioning machine.
if you own a new (intel based) mac, there is no problem in running windows direct on the hardware. there is a tool called "bootcamp" to make the necessary configuration. everthing is explained inside the tool...
