    Hi Polly.Welcome to Techspot.

    The autochk error comes from XP trying to boot to a primary partition that is

    not currently active ie its "hidden NTFS". This would usually come from having

    another OS installed,but also possibly from messing up with your partitioning scheme.

    The solutons I`ve found include -

    1.If you have Partition Magic,boot to that and unhide the partition.

    2.Use PTEDIT to change hex 0x17 to hex 0x07 or "44" to "07"

    3.Using SuperFdisk to unhide it

    4.Run the chkdisk /r from the Recovery Console

    5.In certain situations, removing XP HotFix: KB824105
