You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows

maybe try taking out the cmos battery located in your case, looks like a small watch battery, that will clear bios settings and start from scratch, if there is no battery then there is a jumper sequence to do this

Basically you need to go to Bios to change your "Boot device pripority". Please follow these steps to do this.
Please follow these steps to install XP on your PC.
1. Please start your PC with power button. At the very first screen, at the left down corner, you will see the button to be pressed to go to Setup i.e. Bios of the PC. For most of the PCs , it is delete button. For some of them, it is F2 also. So, after starting the PC press Del to go into setup.
2. After you enter setup of the PC, please go to Advance bios setup.
3. There you select Boot device priority.
4. here the first boot device priority should be CD ROM, then the HDD. Please see the instructions given at right down corner and select this priority.
5. After you rightly selected boot device priority as given above, Press F10 to save the changes and then press F12 to exit.
6. Now the PC will restart again, but be sure that you put win XP cd in the drive before it restarts.
7. Now you will see a note that : press any key to boot from CD ROM, so please press any key.
8. The PC will boot from the CD ROM now , now you can follow the instructions given on the screen.

When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.
