    Attempted to load, what I thought, was Windows XP on my MBPro.

    I'm now starring at a black screen that reads, "no bootable device-insert boot disk and press any key."

    I've tried ejecting the disk, but no luck!

    I've tried a hard restart and I end back at the black screen with the same disk error.

    Anyone know how to get me back to the Mac partition?

    Hold down Alt/Option and reboot.

    If you have a Bluetooth keyboard and that doesn't work you can also use an Apple remote or wired mouse/keyboard to access the boot selector.
