I tried installing Windows 7 as the first partition to TrueCrypt the system drive. Now it won't boot up anymore, it was working though. But now it says no boot partition available, and if I put the Windows or Mac OS X CD in, it won't boot from CD...

How do I force the Macbook Pro to boot from CD? No BIOS on MBP's apparently, etc...
