If I'm reading this correctly, why do you have two operatings systems on one system? The only way to do that is with a hard drive selector. Thats not going to work.

And thats the drive your getting the chkdsk error on. You might need to format the HDD. There's no reason to have 2 OS's on it and only using one.
