I have an iMac running maverick, with win 8.1 installed. It has been running fine. No new hardware or software has been installed in the last month. When I come to the boot option screen, showing the mac and windows drives, if I select the win, everything freezes: screen, keyboard, mouse. There is no hard drive activity. Booting into the mac works fine.

Have you tried resetting pram/nvram?

(hold <command>-<option>-P-R while booting until you hear a couple boot chimes)
