You'll need to patch some files to allow custom themes, I used VistaGlazz. Once windows is patched put the theme file and its folder in C:\\Windows\\Resources\\Themes. Then it should show up in Control Panel>Personalization as an installed theme.

Check out VirtualCustoms windows7 themes, they're some of the best I've found. They also have complete instructions on installing them.
