    So I'm trying to install XP on my iMac using bootcamp with an XP Upgrade cd. The prompt asks to insert a previous versions of windows cd to verify you have an older version of windows. but the thing is I cant eject the CD from the keyboard and the iMac is slot loading. Is there anything I can do?

    yea bootcamp has a big bug and apple is trying to fix it so you have to wait to install it, but i have to recommend crossover as a windows program emu it is great program you should try it

    If you have an external optical drive, you can use that to install with the upgrade. Just have the original in the external.
