It probably is missing as it was in the Partition 2 which you formatted. Run two repairs as outlined in the link you posted.

that is control by the boot item.

At this point it appears your BCD for booting W7 was in a different
partition. So just install the BCD to that W7 partition.

There is one curious thing that I am seeing. In the Work With Partitions
window, when I click 'View MBR' I can only see the newly restored Windows 7
partition with the right label. And that is set as Active. Every other entry
is 0 0 0 0h 0 0 0, Without any labels or anything. So, I am guessing I
messed something up in the process.

But I did follow the above instructions diligently...

I am going to use all caps for the following:
THANKS A TON!!! IT WORKS! I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY SET THIS UP WITH YOU PEOPLE'S HELP.
and I even checked to see that the system restore points are working in Windows 8. I should be all set with this now. Amazing program.

Personally, I much prefer a full image backup to using
Window's Restore Points. They can take up LOTS of disk space
over time as well.

This can be accomplished using BIBM.

Of course there is no denying that image backup is by far superior. I do, as I mentioned above in this thread, also maintain image backups for my system.
