Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
MACBOOK WOULD BOOT. THE BOOT CD IS STOCK IN IT
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.
