1, to open your cd drive manually, get a tooth pick, look closely onto your cd drive i mean where the cd comes out from when ejected, you will see a very tiny hole put the tooth pick inside the hole push it in a bit hard then bring out if it does not try a tinier object it will come out.
2, if the system was on when u disconnected the belt it might have burnt the hdd or has caused error on the hdd, off the computer and reboot if no solution, reformatt the system if it does not work, get a new hdd. thanks

You cannot start a virtual machine in Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or in Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 from a third-party startup CD or from an ISO file that contains a third-party startup CD image.
When you start a virtual machine that does not have a guest operating system, you receive the following warning message:
Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device.
If you insert a startup CD for the operating system into the physical CD drive, or drag an ISO file that contains a startup CD image to the CD icon in the status bar of the virtual machine
window, and then press ENTER, Virtual PC 2004 and Virtual Server 2005 will ignore the operating system that is on the CD or on the CD image.
hope this helps
