    Hi everyone,

    I used bootcamp to partition my drive. So i have a partition of 16 Gb that I wanted to use for windows 7. Unfortunately, this partition is a "primary" partition. I get the information: windows can't be installed, because windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS.

    So I cancel the installation. But then my macbook restarts automatically => restarts installation cd.

    Is there a way to get the cd out of my macbook, before it restarts this cd?

    Any help would be welcome!

    After a long search I finally found something that helped!

    If anyone would have the same problem, this is how you get to restart from your mac harddrive:

    Press the option key while your computer restarts and hold it down during the whole starting process. Suddenly it will ask you what drive you want to boot from.

    Then you choose "macinthosh hd".

    When you're back into mac, you can eject your cd.
