    I inserted the Windows Xp cd, and started the installation via bootcamp. It rebooted the computer and ran the blue screen of the windows installation. At one point during the installation, it said something was wrong and rebooted my mac. I have a macbook pro, by the way. So , now, the only thing that happens is I can turn on the mac, a dark dos window is on it saying:
    press any key to boot cd
    or something like that.
    if I press on a key, the installation starts all over again.
    If i dont, about 5 seconds later, it says:
    disc error
    press any key to reboot
    but it doesnt respond to anything I do
    and I cant seem to eject the disc as well
    I cant run my mac!! not to mention windows.
    Please help me

    thanks so much to anyone who can and will be kind enough to solve this problem

    Press the ALT key during reboot, lets you choose the start disc.

    what do you mean ?

    it doesn't let me reboot,
    it doesn't do anything when i press on any key
    it stays like that
    the only thing I can do is manually shut it down and then start it up again to reach the same screen

    thanks a lot for the fast response !!
