    The other day I decided to try and reinstall windows on my mac.
    I partitioned my 1Tb drive to 32gb windows which i formatted as the installer said (wasn't going to use it much) and the installer failed, which might of been on my behalf.

    I removed the partition in Boot Camp assistant and now every time I boot my mac it goes into windows installer asking me to insert the install disc. If I do not hold down option when booting which just has only the mac harddrive to boot off.

    Try booting to OS X and going to System Preferences -> Startup Disk. Make sure your OS X partition is selected as the default.
