    After I started setting up bootcamp with windows XP on my 2007 macbook, I opened the windows XP pack and couldn't find the disk. Now whenever I boot up my macbook I come up with a screen to insert a windows new disk.
    Is there anyway that I can stop boot camp?

    Hold down Option at startup and select Mac OS X. Then, Re-run the Boot Camp Assistant.

    Hold Alt/Option during the boot process and select your Mac OS X partition, go to System Preferences and select OS X as your Startup Disk.

    celticpride678's approach would work fine too if you actually want to remove the Windows partition, but you will still need to hold Alt/Option to boot back into OS X.

    Thanks for the quick response. I'll try that when I get back to my computer!
