This could be many things...
first of all, are you able to boot into safe mode?..you do that by tapping the F8 key repeatedly while booting, until you get a screen that gives you options on which way you want to boot windows. Select Safe mode and see if you can.
Also, what type of computer do you have?, and, have you done any recent program installations or removals?

While loading windows it freezes


You are not saying what version of Windows you are trying to install. There is a common issue with WIN XP installation where at the "33 minutes to go" mark, during device installation, the system just hangs forever. This occurs when WINDOWS is trying to identify and load default drivers for all the motherboard components. If there is a defective component, the install will hang at that point. It is said that after a few successive attempts that WINDOWS will continue past the error, but my experience has not shown this to be true. In my case it was time for a new motherboard.

My computer, Windows XP, freezes when I use Firefox


Your system loaded with Windows Xp Operating System might get affected by various viruses and malware. The antivirus softwares installed in your system for the removal and prevention of viruses from your system cause the freezing issue. This antivirus softwares might take too many time to load and it also make the entire system slow to boot. The antivirus programs result in the freezing of the Windows Xp during start up. Thus you need to temporary uninstall the antivirus software during the start up of your system.

Installation problem of Ethernet Driver


So, you have a "bootleg" version of Windows, and now you are needing "support" ??? Get legal, and then call Microsoft for support for updates downloaded from Windows Update web-site.

Can you access "DEVICE MANAGER", and then "ROLLBACK" the driver for the network adapter?

Motherboard stop recognize SATA HDD after BIOS reset (default)


You'll likely need either a driver disk for your SATA drive to be recognized by Windows XP during installation or Windows XP with Service Pack 2 built in to install without a driver disk.

Creating a Windows XP installation CD with Service Pack 2 or "SP2" built in is fairly straight forward. This is called "slip streaming". Step - by - step directions can be found in the following links:
