    I went to install Windows XP on Bootcamp on Mac. Towards the end of installing it came up with ‘Disk Error’ ‘Press any key to restart’.

    When I press the power button to shut of the laptop and then press it back on it goes to the same screen.

    Pressing any button dosent do anything, what can I do to get back to my mac window?

    Restart and hold the option key
    It will give you a choice

    As MacDawg said, hold down the option key, until it has a choice of booting up to the internal drive or the CD. Press the eject key on the keyboard to kick out the Windows XP disc, then with the hard drive selected, click the arrow to the right to continue the boot process. This is also assuming that you didn't overwrite the Mac OS partition when selecting a destination for WinXP.
