I don't think that you should have done any of the things involving
boost-jam-3.1.7. I recommend you remove the directory tree rooted at
C:\boost-1.30.2\boost-jam-3.1.7 from your system as it's only likely
to confuse things.

If you just follow the steps described at everything should work.
If you have specific questions about those steps, we'd be happy to try
and answer them.
