Chkdsk requires itself to run on the next reboot because you cannot make changes to the system drive while windows is running. So it schedules itself to run on the next reboot. I don't know why it isn't working when it schedules itself though.

Workaround: using your XP setup CD, boot to the windows xp recovery console. Run chkdsk from there.

See instructions in "Option 2" here:

this points to an OS problem, you can run sfc /scannow from the run box
then try the disk scan again
