Hey gang!


     I want to install Windows 7 on BootCamp on my 2ghz unibod macbook for Day-Z playing purposes, but I have a big problem that I now have hit a concrete wall on.


I was gonna install the Windows ISO from an external drive, but then I find out my internal HDD is also broken and needs to be repaired... I am using Snow Leopard 1.6.8, and everyone is telling me I NEED to boot up the computer with the original CD in there...


Well, tough nuts for me because there is a blank CD stuck in there (drive is kaput).


Is there ANY other way I can fix this **** thing without hocking out money that involves a Disc drive fix? (I never even use the **** disc drive anyway)

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Try restarting your Mac buy holding down eject key, that may get the DVD out of the drive, If not then try start your computer in single user mode, link http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1417 and the type fsck to repair your hard drive.

It looks like you are going to need tool like Diskwarrior, but you will need to run it from the CD or an external hard drive.  If could also be your drive is damage and it needs to be replaced.
