I forgot to mention the a notification box popped up when windows loaded mentioning that it had been restored to a previous restoration point. So it seems like it may have been a combination of the restoration and switching to compatibility mode and...something else? TIme maybe? Haha.

I dont know how it happened, but what happened there is the Linux session changed the storage controller mode. Windows cannot boot when the storage controller mode is something other than that on which it was originally installed.

As as the native storage controller mode is set there again, windows booted up properly. :)
