"I would try to boot into the recovery console from your XP media and run chkdsk /r from there. Important to use the /r switch to also check for hardware defects. If it's still yelling at you then your filesystem is likely beyond repair.
I would also check the HDD status using a tool that can read S.M.A.R.T data
If it's a brand name computer you have they often have some sort of diagnostic utility that you can run to verify that HDD. These are often found on the recovery partition or on the media you got with your computer."
