    You can make it eject by holding down the mouse button while the machine is powering on. I can't think of a way to eject it without at least doing that.

    yep, juz hold down the mouse button while powering up the computer, there's no way to eject the cd during the installation.

    Write the CD key on a seperate sheet of paper. There is no way to eject the CD except for hitting the button on the actual drive.

    Thanks for the quick responses.....would there be any problem by starting again bootcamp? I mean, could I have damaged any files or something if I quit the installation?

    Thnaks,

    Ummm... the cd key is never printed on the key. Unless you have a pirate copy...

    Yes, that's what I am going to do:) . The problems is that I didn't knew the CD Key was printed in the CD.

    I borrow it from my Uni, so they have like an special version. It's different. I don't like it.

    I swear it is not pirate.....I wouldn't do that. It from college. I have talked to them and they have just told me that what is printed there is a key that you enter at a web page of the college. And then they give you the key. I've missed that part.
