Yea, I believe it was just start up repair and then it asked me if I wanted to boot to Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Was disk 2 system reserved already present when you had the problem? Was is marked active (I don't think so)?
Startup repair marked it active and then it can boot from it

In bcdedit output I see:
identifier {ae4c7bd6-dda1-11e1-9fe7-ee660779f48a}
and
identifier {ae4c7bd7-dda1-11e1-9fe7-ee660779f48a}

Have references to E!! I think it's the recovery environment for win8(?) Leave it the way it's now.

Probably not, I possibly had both the system reserves but they were hidden on W7... when they weren't hidden on W8 I foolishly deleted them and that's around when the problem started .. won't be messing with deleting them again
God bless startup repair and your effort to assist me either way, thanks

They didn't just recover? I did delete them on W8 SSD but maybe not permanently? and then I'm wondering what caused the issue.. I thought they were just there for containing error information but it seems they're boot related

I didn't make them! win7 startup repair didn't make them!

On which partition did you delete them?

I deleted them on Windows 8 SSD partition, that disk management is my Windows 7 HDD if it makes any difference
Perhaps it got reset when I restored Windows 8 to an earlier time last night though things still weren't working then.. I tried restoring Windows 7 from start up repair to an earlier date but it didn't seem like it found anything to restore it to.

I'm starting to wonder if when I messed with EasyBCD that might've caused this conflict. I tried added Windows 8 to it but couldn't get it to load it from the boot menu so I removed the Windows 8 entry and uninstalled the program.

Now that I'm done with work, I tried to boot into Windows 8 and it brought me to a boot menu (this seems to happen every time I load the Windows 7 drive now.. any idea howto disable?) I tried to load Windows 8 from it (it was titled Windows 8 (recovered)) and I received a message about a problem with system32\winload.exe status 0xc0000428
"Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file"

In my Bios Boot Option Priorities I did not see the Windows 8 drive, so I went under HD BBS priorities, set it as the primary and then I was able to see it under Boot Option Priorities (though now I don't see the Windows 7 drive under that list)

So I'm able to boot to both Windows 8 and Windows 7 drives now but the Windows 7 drive gives me that bootloader menu (where the Windows 8 choice in it does not work) mainly I just want to resolve removing this screen

win7 boot disk has a bootmenu. It has win7 and win8 in it. win8's winload.exe has not the expected signature because it's newer. I'll tell you how to remove that entry later
