I want to uninstall Windows 8 from my multiboot...

So, I'm dual-booting Win 8 CP and Windows 7. Right now, it's using the Windows 8 boot manager. that said, how can I get rid of 8 AND the boot manager without ruining my Windows 7 partition?

Look in Disk Management. If Windows 7 remains System Active partition then as long as it's on the HD set to boot first in BIOS, you can delete Win8 in Disk Management.

If not post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map with listings, using the SNipping Tool in Start Menu.

The Windows 7 System Reserved partition is booting Windows 7 now as shown by the System Active flags, so while Win8 may be providing the Metro-Style Dual Boot menu it is still good to be deleted in Disk Management since no boot-critical files are on its partition.
