Question A very weird thing happened...

I was formatting my PC literally a few minutes ago as things wern't going well, the formatting froze on 35% so I restarted my PC and I accidently didn't boot to the XP disk and windows began to load and I was like ok this is about to say the partiton is corrupted but nothing! I'm here writing this without having any errors at all
