    I tryed to partition Windows on my MacBook Pro to install Microsoft products and I was unaware that I needed a Windows installation disk and the screen is stuck on "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key" and I had the Mac OS X installation disk in the disk drive and it wont eject. I shut it off and turn it on and its still stuck on the same screen. How can I get back to the way it was before I tryed the partition?

    Did you try pressing the option key as your computer starts up? You should get the option to boot back into mac os.

    If you want your hard disk space back, just go into the Boot Camp Utility. It gives you the option of removing the boot camp partition, restoring your HDD to a single large partition.

    EDIT: Also, remember to go into the Startup Disk control panel and set your Macintosh HD to your default startup disk. You don't want to be holding down the option key every time you restart your mac.
