Not able to boot macbook pro into OSX. I have Windows 7 installed through bootcamp and that works fine. I have reset the SMC, and PRAM. I am also unable to boot it into safe mode. I used SHIFT COMMAND V to see the text login. It gets stuck at "waiting for root device".


Any advice?


edit: also I accidently put the osx install disk from a 2010 macbook into the 2009 macbook pro. Now its not letting me get it out. Is there any way to make it force eject?

Force eject, option,command,esc.  Try booting holding option, it should allow you to select which partion to boot into.  Hope this helps.
