I just installed Linux on my early 2008 iMac. After the install finished the CD didn’t eject. Subsequent reboots just booted from the cdrom again and again.
Eject CD from iMac
How can I force a CD to eject from an iMac?
- Hold down the option key on start-up until the disk/boot icons appear. (option is the Alt key on a PC keyboard)
- Then press the eject key (or F12) on the keyboard.
