    so I started bootcamp and burned the cd of the drivers. I wasn't paying attention to my battery and it died while windows was setting up. I thought nothing of it and charged my macbook. When it turned on a continued the process of setting up windows and when I got to the part that says "click enter to continue" or whatever, my enter key wouldn't work! so now I can't get back to my osx os until I guess I finish installing windows. what do I do?
    thanks

    have you got a real keyboard plugged in or wireless one? you could always try holding down option, boot into mac, format the windows drive and start again.

    yeah, I have my wireless one installed but that didn't work. I don't undestand why nothing would work when I tried clicking enter, though. Right now I just want to get back to osx, I would rather just leave off windows. how can I get back to osx from the boot?

    hold down the power button till it turns off, turn it on again then hold down option until you get the boot menu.
