Can't believe this but I just started to install vista and realised it was an upgrade disc so it wouldn't install. NOW I'm stuck in the windows installation and can't get out and can't remove the disc. Any suggestions on how to get out of this....

PLEASE HELP

Thanks

You haven't mentioned which Mac you have or which OS - but there are several ways to get a CD out of your machine. The eject key on your keyboard - rebooting while holding down your trackpad button or depressing your trackpad. There are a couple of others - if you've tried those unsuccessfully.

Don't be too upset. Not being able to install Vista is probably a good thing.

Reboot the machine back to OS X and eject the Vista CD as you would any other disk.
