Did you follow the steps in Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista? If so it should present a Dual Boot menu when it starts to choose which OS to boot.
Did you make sure that you weren't selecting the Win7 partition to install Win8 upon?
If so, boot into Win8 to run Repair which should add Win7 to the boot menu: System Recovery Options - Boot to in Windows 8
If not, install EasyBCD to Win8 to add Win7 to Dual Boot on the Add OS Entry tab. You should be able to figure out at Start>Computer which is the Win7 partition so you have its letter if required.
