windows 7 32bit and Windows xp 32 bit

I don't know did it exactly finish installing or not.
The windows 7 disc still in the drive, and pushed the reset button and F8 key to get into safe mode, and pop up the message said ( the windows did not finished installing press enter to let it complete install).
But after the logo disappear for almost 15 minutes or so,and even my monitor goes to power saver mode.
