    Help Removing Windows from MBP
    I recently acquired a barely used Macbook Pro, 17 in. The previous owner was using windows XP on it and has no original software for the computer. I am trying to install a new Mac OS but cannot get the CD drive to boot on startup. I've tried holding the C key, and some other commands but Windows always boots up. Any suggestions? Thanks
