Can no longer boot into Windows 8 after installing Fedora 18

I disabled uefi in my BIOS settings and installed Fedora from a USB stick. Installation asked me to create a 1MB BIOS boot partition so I did.

Windows and Windows Recovery options appear in my GRUB menu but when I access them I get the following error:

File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc0000225
Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.

How do I fix this? I wish to be able to dual boot between Windows and Linux. I know its a problem with my Windows installation but didn't know if it was a common problem for users who install Fedora alongside Windows 8.
