Windows 7: Win 7 Themes Problem

Win 7 Themes Problem

Hi everyone;
I'm new here and I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.
I recently downloaded a theme pack from Microsoft's website, although when I tried to run it, I got an error saying "This edition of windows doesn't support themes."!
I don't really understand why I'm getting such error, I'm using an HP Pavilion dv6 - 1330et laptop.
Can anyone help, please?

Well, if the information about your OS you have entered earlier is correct, then it doesn't make sence
Can you link us to that theme you got the error with?
Only Windows 7 Starter can't apply other themes than default aero from what i know. Home Premium should be able to.

Windows 7 Home Premium

Oh, my mistake apparently I'm using Windows 7 Home Basic. I've mixed it with my old laptop which it was Windows Vista Home Premium.
So, Win 7 Basic doesn't support themes?

Windows 7 Home Premium

Then I suppose I should install Home Premium, or maybe Professional. If only I could find an install cd >.<
