Hello, I had a new samsung hdd 500gb in my computer. During formatting I mistakenly shut the computer down. when I turned the computer on it shows again & again 'error loading operating system'. Now how can I run the set up?

Since you were formatting the disk, I assume you don't want anything that is on it. Insert the XP install CD and boot up. During the install process you will be given a chance to create/delete/format partitions. Delete all partitions from the drive then continue with installation.
