    I suspect you're trying to eject the Vista DVD before it's really done. The Vista installation process requires several reboots - don't eject the DVD until you get to the Vista desktop.

    I'd suspect that if those multiple reboots don't work during installation, could it be you chose the wrong partition?

    Holding down the option key on startup and then selecting the Mac partition. Afterwards, you probably need to check your Startup Disk in System Preferences on the Mac side. It may be set to the removed BootCamp partition by default. As far as the initial error you encountered, you did format the BootCamp partition as NTFS right? Double-check the steps you took vs. the ones in the BootCamp install guide at this URL.
