I have recently updated my win 8 to windows 8.1 and due to some game compatibility issues installed windows 7 over windows 8.1 and now my win 8.1 is not booting
its showing the windows symbol for some time and self restarting
can anyone help me to get my 8.1 back?

What do you mean by ""Over Win 8.1"? You mean- you just went on with installation of 7? What Media did you use- DVD? Did you format your drive when you did this? Are you willing to install 8.1 from clean or want to save your files? I hope you have back up because it is not likely Refresh would work. Please, pose more details.

windows 7 and 8 use different boot loaders, it take more care to setup a multiboot. here is some info on how to repair the win 8 boot:
