The problem is this: creating the extra volume converted my whole HDD to dynamic. That said, my Windows 8 boot was lost immediately. So, I just deleted the Windows 8 partition and the new one and merged all that extra space to my data partition. Now, will this mess with my Windows 7 boot at all? I'm scared to restart my computer.
I'm feel stupid.
Insert your Windows 7 installation cd and boot off of it. Next, click on repair your computer and then click on startup repair. It should fix the issues. If not, insert your Windows 8 installation cd/usb and run startup repair off of that.
