    I have a small problem with my iMac.
    Whenever i perform a restart and have a disc in the superdrive, it ejects and refuses to start up from it. The reason why I want to know how I can disable this is because of the problems it causes when I want to install Snow Leopard or other media that has to boot from disc.

    I remember trying BootCamp a year ago, and the Windows CD just ejected itself before it could boot to it. I just had a small laugh because the first that came to mind was "No Windows! Blææh!" (It was funny right then and there)

    So I recon that the problem started there. And has just stuck with the iMac since. I've not performed a clean install since that time (TimeMachine backup and use MigrationAssistant every time I reformat)

    And yes, is there a solution to my problem?

    System Preferences -> Boot disk -> Make sure your HD where OS X is installed is chosen
