There are only two ways to resize a Boot Camp partition properly.
1. Use Boot Camp Assistant to remove the existing partition then create a new one of the desired size.
2. Purchase and use the third-party utility, Camptune X 10.4.
Anything else damages the partition scheme requiring the entire drive be re-partitioned from scratch back to a single volume.
1. You cannot resize a Boot Camp partition with Disk Utility like a normal drive.
2. You cannot have more than two partitions on a Boot Camp managed drive.
3. You cannot re-partition or resize the drive with Windows' utilities.

If there is I don't know about it. I've never been a main-line user of Boot Camp and Windows. But it couldn't hurt searching Google for something. You never know what you may find.

If you haven't already looked, try looking at this thread: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4144252. It has been bookmarked by a large number of people and the author helps many to recover from an issue very similar to yours. It is not an easy task, and it has a good bit of risk, so I wouldn't suggest that you even attempt anything else until you have completed a good backup of your partitions.
I would like to add that BootCamp itself does not support multiple storage drives in a portable system, so your configured SSD+HDD would not be a supported environment under BootCamp, unless you have built your own Fusion Drive under MacOS, and then you would be on your own because the Fusion Drive is not officially supported on portable computers either.

As long as you use the drive not installed in the optical drive bay, then you should be OK. You will need to use a USB based Windows installer in the absence of an optical drive.

Ok, it's been some time, but I haven't had the time to get to repair my Windows earlier.
Thanks GeekBoy for pointing me to that article. After I did a proper backup I tried creating a new MRB via gdisk, but it did not solve the issue.
In the end I just did a clean format of the partition and reinstalled windows. After everything is up and running now, I've made a backup of it using Winclone Pro, just in case.
I'm not quite sure I understand your comments towards Fusion Drive (I didn't create one) and on these older MacBooks you also can't use a USB installer, because it can't boot windows from USB when it originally came with a SuperDrive.
So how did I install it in the end?
Well I made a new thread for that:
