Unfortunately on the newer mac computer including the macbook you cannot boot to open firmware but there are other options
option 1)simply try holding down the mouse button or track pad button during boot after the first chime is sounded this will instruct the computer to eject the cd through the firmware
option 2) you can bypass the cd boot by holding down the option key after the first boot chime another simple solution this will allow you to choose a startup disk during...startup after which you can try the eject button on the keyboard or select the disk in finder and eject via trash can or eject symbol(symbol located in the open folder view of finder)
option 3) there is also a manual eject button though it may be harder to locate as they have change placements of it over the years however it can usually be found by probing the top center or far right of the cd slot with a paper clip just be gentle you don't want to damage an expensive piece of equipment by just carelessly jamming metal in it
you may want to try searching apple with your particular model and search for manual cd eject
best wishes, Crash

Boot into Open Firmware and eject If you have a Mac that will not startup properly and has a stuck disc, try booting into Open Firmware by holding down Command, Option, O key and F key during startup. After booting into Open Firmware, type the command eject-cd. When finished, type in shut-down.

When booting up my laptop it has a gray screen with the apple for a minute and then it turns to a circle with a slash through it


Boot from the CD/DVD that came with your Macbook. Launch 'Disk Utility' and perform 'Repair Disk' as well as 'Repair Disk Permissions' on your boot drive and hopefully that will fix the issue.

If that doesn't do it, try holding the Option key during startup to select the boot disk and select your Mac HD. If it boots in this manner there are rumors about some bad SuperDrives out there causing this boot issue. So you may want to boot it while holding "D" and run the Apple Hardware Test from the DVD/CD.

You cannot break apple's security as simply as windows. It would mean getting a unix boot cd, and logging in as root (if the apple lets you) and trying to unlock the OSX account... not easy.

Since no MacBook was ever made with an 8GB hard drive, I have to assume you are reading the capacity of the DVD, which isn't an interesting statistic.
There is no reason your MacBook should not boot from the DVD. Even if the internal drive was physically absent it should still boot from the DVD.
If it is not booting from the DVD, then either your DVD is bad, your optical drive is bad, or you have logic board issues.
