Please dont post intermediate snapshots, its very confusing. Can you right click on the System partition and mark it Active?

No theres nothing foolish but first you need to clean up that partitioning mess on your computer. Greg's already given you instructions, just backup your data to an external drive and follow the instructions correctly.

What Greg asked me to do is this:
"Move the data off the extra partitions you created and delete them"
Does it mean i have to delete all the partitions except the System, c:, recovery and HP Tools???
and i delete them using PW or simply disk mgmt.?

Exactly, MOVE the data to a safe location such as an external hard disk from where it can be restored later. After that, delete all the partitions except System, C: , Recovery and HP tools. You can delete them in disk management itself.
