There I was trying to install Windows Media Center 2005 on my iMac using the Bootcamp tool. The installation was going well until it asked me to "Insert the 2nd CD"…. I pressed the EJECT button on my Apple keyboard and nothing happens. That is because the "only eject button" on the keyboard is not recognized by the Windows installer.
I want to curse Windows for not supporting this option, but actually this is an Apple Mac problem since it’s their hardware that is not user friendly. Why have Apple not included a pin hole eject button on the iMac? (it would seem the logical thing to do).
So, going no where fast because there is no way of ejecting the CD I had to abort. (Nothing like a wasted morning).
I have found a solution be it another typical example of how Apple want us to take 5 steps backwards to do a simple task.
The solution is to create a disk image and then to copy the two windows CD’s into the disk image and burn it and to use the one disk instead of two. Time clearly grows on trees for Mac Lovers. (ha ha).
