I need some clarification. I installed win8 on Drive D: and windows 7 on Drive C. I will use this intruction given here right? I remembered I first installed win7 then dual boot win8 next. Does this info make a difference?

Followed what method? You referenced Clean Reinstall in quote but then asked if you should reinstall. So exactly what method did you follow that didn't work?

Im sorry. I followed your method only up to moving the bootmanager to C. Btw, when I moved it to C within win7, it shows something like the attachment. just replace earlier version of windows to win 8.1. then i run automatic repair within win 8. it just says repairing then instant shutdown. when i reset it, it goes back on the multiboot loader of windows 8.1 which uses the blue theme. then thats when i told you it doesnt work. maybe i'll clean reinstall both os. thanks for your time

Did you try to move Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums while booted into Windows 8?

Try that to see if after reboot it will give the modern Boot Menu and move the System Active flags in Disk Mgmt to Windows 8.

If necessary you can then use EasyBCD to add Windows 7 to the Boot Menu if it won't respond, removing any old Windows 7 listing first if necessary.

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

If you really want to reinstall Windows 8 then simply delete its partition during reinstall and create/format a new one. This should configure Windows 7 into a Dual Boot, but if not you can use EasyBCD from the reinstalled 8 to add Windows 7 by drive letter showing in Windows 8. Be sure to delete any old listing of Windows 7 in EasyBCD that doesn't work before adding it again.
