    sounds like your hard disk is going bad, i would back up any important data if I were you

    when installing a dual boot environment, it is always best to install windows first as it will overwrite the MBR and make linux unbootable, you can fix this by using supergrubdisk to reinstall grub to MBR

    you need to reformat linux partition when you reinstall linux (most often the only exception is home partition), otherwise you will probably run into problems especially if you are switching between different distros and versions
