    Try this, reboot the computer holding the Option key down, wait for the boot drive options to appear, then press the Eject key on the keyboard.

    If it works and the disc pops out, then select your boot drive and press the Return key to boot up.

    Hi,

    I have done this in the past but only if all else fail. Turn the Macbook off, then get a credit card and place gently into the CD/DVD dive slot pushing downwards then reboot the Mac gently teasing credit card under the disc thus pushing it upwards and out of the drive bay.
