I'm a recent owner of a MacBook that was apparently "dropped" on the side with the media drive - the previous owner had a dvd in the drive and it is jammed inside. I've tried booting the macbook while holding the trackpad button, the cardboard trick, and others. The dvd is in there for good . I need to install parallels but need to boot from the cd that I burned. I have a 12in powerbook that I've been connecting to the macbook by firewire, in order to use the cd drive. Is there a way that I could boot from my powerbooks cd drive from the macbook - by firewire connection? Hope this made some sense.
