    Hold down the opt key, then select the Lion boot volume. Once booted, go to System Preferences > Startup Disk and select the Lion volume as the default.

    To eject a disc on startup, hold down the trackpad/mouse button until it ejects.

    Restart and hold the option key down during restart. Then select the OS X partition. When boot completes, then go into system preferences on the mac and select start up disk and select the OS X partition.

    What do you mean by "installed Windows" If you installed it on a bootcamp partition then as others pointed out you need to change the boot volume to OSX. If you did a complete clean install with a disk format than you may need to reinstall OSX, create a Bootcamp partition and reinstall Windows.

    Holding the eject key down at boot until it ejects is the only thing that's ever worked for me when it refuses to eject in the OS. Same for my father.
