Problems with dual boot windows 7 - Ubuntu 12.04

#1
Hi. My Pc is a Fujitsu Lifebook P771. I replaced the HDD with a SSD, cloned the original Windows installation, and created two more partitions. The first partition is for windows, the second (extended) has all windows stuff + the swap are for linux, the third and the fourth are the Root and the Home partition for linux.
The linux boot loader is, as suggested, on first linux partition.
I followed the instructions of EasyBCD and added an entry for Neogrub to let Windows bootloader to start first.
When I opt for Neogrub it does not boot and I get the following message:
Try (hd0,0): NTSF5: No neogrub
Try (hd0,1): NTSF5: No neogrub
Try (hd0,2): EXT2: No neogrub
Try (hd0,3): Ext3: No neogrub
Cannot find Neogrub in all drives

I temporararily solved the problem using the Legacy option for Linux and now I have a working dual boot, but I wonder how cannot use Grub2.

My BCD is the following:
