    Hey everyone.

    Im new to the macrumor forum's. But anyway, back on topic.

    I just got leopard last night, the first thing I did was open up bootcamp and try to install windows. It was working, until some files could not be downloaded. So I hit f3 (exit setup) and it started to reboot, like it said it would. Now, my computer (im on my Mother's) has a black screen saying this:

    Press any key too boot disk. . . . .
    non system disk
    Press any key to reboot.

    The problem is, I CAN'T reboot because none of the key's will respond on that screen. Can someone please help me?

    Thank you.

    Turn the computer off, then hold Option while turning it back on. Keep holding the key until you get a grey screen with a couple of icons. Click the icon for OS X and it should boot up normally. Once you've done that, open up System Preferences and choose the OS X volume in Startup Disk.
