Very stupidly I under duress I tried to install a windows 7 disk into my new imac, via boot camp, just because most of our software is serif! It came to a part that said remove disk and restart then reinsert disk....I have the external apple disc drive but disk would not eject and neither could I restart....so I shut down then restarted....now my screen says no dic found insert boot disk? HELP PLEASE, I'm crying here.....bluddy windows I hate it!!!

located
Upon restarting press down the OPTION/Alt key to get to the boot selection screen and choose your Macintosh HD to boot from. After that is done, use Boot Camp Assistant to remove the Windows partition and start anew.

Try holding down alt key at start up. should bring up all bootable disks. Choose mac drive and you should be ok :)
