Windows 7: Windows 8 startup doesn't stop

Windows 8 startup doesn't stop

I installed a new partition for windows 8 because I wanted to try something, I got it installed along side of windows 7, I didn't like the way windows 8 would boot first then ask me what OS I wanted to use so I made my other partition back to primary and uninstalled windows 8. That is where the problem started, now when I start up my computer it still tries to boot into windows 8 but then wants me to press F9 to use an alternate Operating System or use other "F" keys to use multiple repair options to repair win8. How do I make it so it only boots to windows 7 again?

Also I have completely merged the win8 partition back with the main hard drive using the "extend drive" function.

Try deleting Windows setup in System Configuration.

Can you post a screen shot of Disk management & OS System Configuration?

The drive labeled "Darkdrive" is just an external hard drive.

I couldnt get the "add youtube video" function to work so I guess you will have to open it in a new tab, sorry.

Do you have the Windows 8/8.1 DVD in the DVD drive?

Try use the Rebuild BCD in this tutorial:
Use Bootrec.exe in the Windows RE to troubleshoot startup issues
