    See if EasyBCD can help you, get it from here:
    neosmart.net/EasyBCD/

    I think your Windows 7 boot entry might have been tempered while installing Windows 8. Install EasyBCD in Windows 8, run the program. Delete the Windows 7 boot entry and create a new entry for the Windows 7 partition.

    Let us know if it solved your problem.

    Put the Windows 8 install disk in and boot up. Use the Start up repair. This will give you Windows 8, in the dual boot menu, as the default. Don't change it to Windows 7 or you will get the same error.
