You need to use Diskpart or free Partition Wizard bootable CD to mark each of the partitions besides Windows 7 inactive, then make sure Windows 7 is marked Active.

Now boot the Windows 7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots, as it will attempt to repair and then finally write the MBR to Windows 7.

everything seems ok now except for the fact that i still have the Boot directory in G: and i can't delete it (with alle the sub-dirs too), but i could delete bootmgr and all the files in those directory from recovery shell

You can't delete boot files from G because it is marked System Active, as is F marked active.

As stated earlier, you need to mark those partitions inactive using Diskpart commands, or using free Partition Wizard bootable CD. Then mark Windows 7 partition Active.

Next write the MBR (from G) to Windows 7 partition by booting the Windows 7 DVD repair console, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times.

If you have any questions about performing these operations or need additional help, just ask rather than ignoring it.

Post back a screenshot of your full Disk management drive map, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu.
