    I recently tried to boot camp yesterday, i don't have a legit disc but i hear you can do it with out the legit disc. i went through most steps but got to upgrade and custom of the install and no partitions were about to be used, but i did not know about the format part at all :( so. now I'm thinking about doing it again. But last time i tried and i was stuck at the upgrade and custom part of the install, the disc would not eject and i could not restart my mac into mac platform it would keep coming up with press any key to continue download, and then it would bring me into the install again. So i brought the mac book to the source and they got the disc out and restarted it in my mac platform. If i get stuck how can i get the disc out and restart my laptop as a mac? cause i really don't want to go back to the source and look like a retard trying it again?

    I know I've posted asking about this topic and i finally tried it and want to know if i try it again with a legit disc and i get stuck how do i restart my mac and run it back into my mac format??

    Hold down the option key when booting up, then select your MacOS partition.

    Yeah, hold the Option key to go to the boot selector screen.

    As for ejecting the disc in Windows after installing, you'll need to open up Windows Explorer listed as "Computer" in the Windows Start menu. Right-click on the disc drive and select Eject.

    You'll need to install the Boot Camp drivers in Windows to get the Boot Camp utility which you can use to select the default OS when booting up, otherwise Windows stays as the default.
