If you want to try to fix the MBR disk then first I would mark G Inactive as only the OS or it's boot partition should be marked Active: Partition - Mark as Inactive - Windows 7 Forums

Next I would unplug all other HD's except Win7, boot your WIn7 DVD to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times with reboots until Win7 starts on its own.

If this fails then I would next check my BIOS settings to see if there are other EFI settings that need adjusting. Normally it chooses EFI by setting EFI boot disk to boot first in BIOS Setup. There may be other settings on your mobo. I would read the Manual on the maker's Support Downloads webpage for your model.

There could be other problems with your HD as the two RAW partitions mean the data (if any) has been lost and must be reformatted. See if they will reformat now - if not you may need to wipe or reinitialize the HD.
