iMac 17inch Boot keys don't seem to work

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I tried to install xp with boot camp. Now the installation is stuck, it can't copy many of the files (perhaps due to badly scratched disk, but I don't really care about it.) I am unable to get the computer to boot back into OSX. Holding the option key does nothing, holding the mouse button to eject so I can put the OSX cd in does not work. I have tried a few other boot keys but nothing seems to work.

I installed windows on boot camp a while ago, about a year, and I could use the option key just fine to switch OSes. I have since replaced the keyboard, but the keyboard seemed to work just fine when it was in OSX.

Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this huge paperweight on my desk? Why the boot keys might not be working especially.
