    I tried to do BootCamp Assistant with some Windows disk that I got. My screen is now black and it says there is no bootable device and I need to insert one but it won't let me get back to my normal mac. I have the disk in my computer and my eject button isn't working. I am done with Windows and I just want my mac back! Please help!:(

    Getting Mac Back

    To get the CD out of the drive, hold down the eject button then turn it on whilst still holding down the button.

    It also sounds like you accidentally wiped the hard disk in the process, but i may be wrong, this could only happen if you got into the setup and formated the entire hard disk instead of just the partition for windows. Which obviously means you need to re-install OS X.

    If you get the disc out of the drive i can give you instruction to install OS X using a 16GB flash drive, (or possibly even 8gb). Thats how i install os x on my macbook.

    Try holding Option as you boot and see if it gives you "Macintosh HD" as a choice.
