Hi and Welcome !
Linux installers install Boot Loader (GRUB) in MBR of Primary disk by default. Although you have installed Linux in second disk, GRUB has been installed in MBR of First disk only.
First of all, remove GRUB from first disk. Boot up from Windows Installation CD and select Repair. It will drop at command prompt. Execute fixmbr command. It will remove GRUB and re-install Windows Boot Loader. Windows OS will boot up fine after that.
I can still boot linux but only from the disk & when i try to reinstall linux using the desktop icon i get a message telling me that there's a hardware problem so i can't even reinstall linux.
