    I was trying to install Windows 7 earlier, when the installation is almost done, it gave it a last reboot, but then this error showed up. "Press any key to boot from cd . . ."

    Well, it doesn't respond to any key I press. So, I plugged in my USB keyboard, still no hope.

    I don't get what the problem is, only partitioned 50gb for windows. I have 410 free after that. It was formatted to NTFS.

    The weird thing is, I burned it with Toast 10, and I installed it on my iMac 21.5 inch, it worked fine, but then I tried to do it on my Macbook Pro (it's the new one by the way), it gave me that error.

    I wonder if it's because it won't let me install it more than once?
