Black, will it still load Ubuntu? I'd try re-installing GRUB.

I decided to do a chkdsk and I was able to boot into Windows, weird..

I figured maybe that shrinking the partition could have shifted some files in Windows or something. I was still able to get to the screen that lets you choose which os to boot into, seeing both Linux and Windows, but when I tried to boot Windows it would get to the XP splash screen and would freeze, sometimes just go black and freeze.

Long story short, it has to do with the windows pagefile. Unless you shrink the windows partition through it's internal disk management program, it can throw up that error. You were getting a BSOD because Windows was expecting a certain part of the disk to be available for paging, and it wasn't.

That's most likely true. Windows is so incredibly inflexible that it chucks a fit if it doesn't feel like it's in control of your computer. I have also had it throw a chkdsk at me when touching its partitions externally.
