Default windows XP

hi,
I read Computer Freaks thread on how to re-format windows. I am running Windows XP. i insert the disk and everything goes well until it says your PC may reboot. When my PC restarted it did the memory test and then said primary master slave-None. And secondary master slave then sais my hardrive, Samsung.
But then it just stopped there! Nothing happened
What should I do?
Thanks to anyone who replies.

You should change the cable to your harddrive inside the computer so that your harddrive is on the primary ide port. Though usually windows will boot from a secondary master.
