Hola!
 
This is one of those random questions that just came to me. Can you completely delete the Mac OS and install Windows?

It is possible, through bootcamp I believe. However Apple Recommends against it.
This is mainly due to the fact that if you completely override OS X, you also wipe out a lot
of Firmware information, which will mac the Apple created Windows Support Drivers unstable.

The best that I can recommend is to at least leave 10GBs of OS X left when creating the Partition,
and use the rest of the HDD space for Windows. Just to be on the safe side.

Instead of BIOS in PC, Mac has built-in EFI. I think you can just put your Windows CD/DVD in and boot up your machine while holding the "Option" Key and you should the Hard drive icon and the DVD icon.

Boot from DVD and use the installation program to erase the whole hard drive and there you go.

HOWEVER, it's HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED.
