Sounds like a configaration error. Do as the message says. To run chkdsk you need your installation disc or recovery disc and select repair. Only do this operation if you know what you are doing.

Did you make a partition when installing windows XP so you have windows7 and XP on the computer. Not a good idea
I would choose one or the other and do a reinstall

i have tried chkdsk but it's not working, while installing XP it copies file but after that it shows the same message and stop's the installation.
