    I went to install Windows XP via bootcamp as I no longer have a windows XP machine, but still need windows XP for a few things work related. The install failed, the CD I used was kinda scratched and it missed a few of the files during installation so I skipped them (usually not an issue as they were driver files and such). Well the installed failed and cannot complete. Now I"m stuck in a vicious loop where it wants to try and complete the install every time it boots.

    I'm using a non-apple keyboard, when I try to hold down what would be the equivalent of command+option+O+F it does nothing and either starts the windows installation all over or tries to continue and finish the current install.
    No matter what, no luck getting the windows disk to eject.

    Any ideas?

    Did you try holding down the mouse button on startup (provided you're not using a bluetooth mouse)?
