    have you installed and used in windows 7 (before the problem) some softwares to change the boot image like "Win7BootUpdater"?
    I've found problem with this program, because it modify the winload.exe on windows 7 directory, so the new winload.exe installed from windows 8 doesn't not exist anymore; and at the boot of windows 7 i've got a winload.exe error. So from windows 8 i've replaced the backup file of winload.exe and after i could work again on my windows 7 o.s.

    You can try "Dual-boot Repair" tool from Visual BCD package.
    1. Run "Dual-boot Repair" click on "Automatic Repair" (program should say that Windows 8 is found and will be the default boot entry) - this will rewrite boot files

    2. Run sfc for Win 7
    SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - Windows 7 Forums

    Check if Win 7 can boot properly.
