That's not the right disk...

While in the command window, type Diskpart, when it loads enter list disk. Give us a screenshot.

If the drive's got no drive letter I don't think there's any way to run chkdsk on it.

Fsing is correct - you are running chkdsk on Drive X:, which is the Windows installation DVD/USB. Thats why is says "Write protected'.

Perform the list disk as recommended.

I believe the convention is
to run checkdisk on drive C.
