    Exclamation Boot Windows with Ubuntu disk in drive

    I have been very stupid and dove into Ubuntu without knowing anything about it. I inserted the disk described in http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download without Linux. I want to know how to get out of the command prompt and enter Windows so I can eject the disk and reboot my system. Please note, if you view this post that it is time sensative and I really need to get started on a report. Thanks in advance, Ububtu Community!

    Turn off your computer. Stick a paper clip end into the hole in the cd or dvd drive face plate, take out the cd disk and turn your computer back on.
    Six Saturdays a week for me.

    Code:
    sudo poweroff
    DVD drive should eject the disk.
    When you remove it hit enter and computer should poweroff.

    As everything with computers there is more than one way:

    sudo shutdown -h now
    sudo shutdown -r

    h is halt
    r is reboot
    now is immediately
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:
