    so heres the deal i was installing windows 7 with bootcamp and my battery died (stupid i know not to plug it in but whatever) anyway no every time i start up my computer it goes to the windows 7 install says theres an error and restarts and just does this over and over again. i pushed the eject button but the disk wont come out.

    so my question is....

    is there anyway to get back to the osx partition or do i need to schedule an apptment with a genius?

    any and all helps would be appreciated thanks

    Press and hold down the OPTION/ALT key during start up (right after the sound) and select Mac OS X too boot from. When booted into Mac OS X, open Boot Camp Assistant to delete the Windows partition. Then run BCA again to create a new Windows partition and install Windows again (if you like).

    Also have a look at the following links, as the information presented there might be helpful in your future endeavours into Mac OS X and could clear up initial confusion and may even prevent harm to your system or your files.Mac OS X Basics
