Windows 7: Partitioning Problem In Win7 Home Basic (factory pre-installed)

Try contacting HP support.

You should be able to order the disc's to reinstall your Windows 7 Basic.

If it is under warranty, I would tell them I bumped the machine while it was running and the HD crashed. They might send the disc for free.

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.
You can unlock all other versions using this tool,

Ei.cfg removal tool

As mentioned here,

Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create

Which will give you the option to install Home Basic.

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.
