I just bought my MBP like 3 hours ago.

 

Thing is, I bought it in Russia and the OS is in Russian.

My Russian is bad.

 

So, I decided to restore my Mac into factory settings?

 

So, I tried boot camp.

 

Now, this happened.

 

This is so depressing, help!!

 

I tried to press the on button, to try and force shut down - failed.

 

I tried pressing the Option key, which I assume is the key with the alt on it, right??

 

And, my Mac OS cd is in my Mac, I don`t know how to remove the cd.

    So, I decided to restore my Mac into factory settings?

     

    If you want to do that, you have to boot the Mac from your Mac OS X Install disc by inserting the disc, then restart while holding down the 'C' key until you see the Apple logo. Then you choose your language (English) and let the installer do it's thing.

     

    To remove a CD that failed to eject, you startup the Mac while holding down the mouse button (trackpad button on a laptop) until the drive ejects.

    

    So, I tried boot camp.

     

    Don't do that. Boot Camp has nothing to do with this; it's for running Windows on your Mac.

    

    I tried to press the on button, to try and force shut down - failed.

    You have to hold it for about 6 seconds for it to shutdown. Did you do that?

    

    I tried pressing the Option key, which I assume is the key with the alt on it, right??

    Why would you need the Option key for this?
