Re: the first question. Are you saying Partition Wizard won't allow you to create a logical drive
when you select the unallocated space. This should give you two give you 2 logical drives (partitions if you like) within the green outlined extended partition?
I think the second question has been answered. The HP is activated with an OEM:SLP key and internal process which is different to a clean install using the COA PID key. License types are described here. For you (non retail license) it will always be locked to your HP PC. http://www.mydigitallife.info/differ...-product-keys/
