I asked you if the Windows 7 which is installed is the same one which came with the HP? Was it activated using the Product Key on the COA?
Yes it is. Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit. I haven't altered it. Pre-installed windows are OEM's, right?
Also the link which you posted " Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7" doesn't have Win7HB. Only higher versions.

My question is why am i getting "max partitions" error when trying to create new volume?
And, how to i deactivate this key so that i can format the whole laptop and re-install a genuine OS again?
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/
