    I opened up the Bootcamp assistant and tried to put my legit disc in the computer but when i put it in it makes these quiet noises then just comes out of the disc tray a few moments later.

    have you checked disc clean as i've found optic drive very sensitive to even the smallest of finger smudges etc try first then run in bootcamp
