Windows 7 wont boot after windows 8

So I dual boot windows 8 making a partition in my second hard drive. My Pc is 64 bit but for some reason windows 8 keep bsod me in installation. The 32 bit work. Then i shut down my computer and boot windows 7. It got stuck in a black screen for more than 5 mins so i shut it down. Try it again and system recovery option appear. Tried a system recovery but no luck. Windows 8 works and Im using it right now. I can see all my data in my c drive (windows7). Any suggestions??

How do you boot to Windows 7? Just using a bootmenu and select Windows 7, or by using bios and select the Windows 7 disk as first boot device?

boot into recovery options and select "command prompt"

bcdedit /enum all > c:\bcdedit.txt

please post c:\bcdedit.txt
you can delete that file afterwards if you wish.
Also post a full blown screenshot of "disk management" with all fields visible. Can also be done in win8 I hope.

Your system's bootmgr is located on D (what's called D in win8)
bootmenu is on D as well.
windows 7 is on D (what's called D in win8)

So far so good, I don't see any problems. bootmgr is working and bcd menu is good.

What happens exactly when starting Windows 7 in safe mode? Tell me exactly what you see

I really dont know how to get in safe mode in the new windows 8 bootmenu. So i tried another way. Run>msconfig>boot. And check safe mode for the windows 7 os, but this didn't work. I dont know if this is important but my laptop came with vista, I upgraded to 7 went it came out.

PS. Changed the default os to windows 7 in System properties. Going to restart now.

PS2. Doing the above boot me in the normal (black screen) bootmenu of windows 7. I selected windows 7 hit f8 and automatically started the system recovery option.

I have the exact same problem!
I installed windows 8 on a free partition ( d) there where some games on it. i used a little bit windows 8 but i could not connect to the internet (windows 8 is not seeing my wifi usb dlink antenna) so i wanted to go back to windows 7. Before restartign i saw something strange my windows 8 changed the partition letter D to C :/ First of all , the choose boot was in the bios and not in the windows 8 style. And every time i choose windows 7 its entering into SYSTEM RECOVERY OPTIONS!

I tried to restore my system or a startup repair. but nothing is working! Its always booting into system recovery options!

a little help plz!
