Does the laptop have a Recovery partition which can be run to restore Win 7 Home Premium? If WIn7 came with it, can you order the Recovery disks or a Win7 install DVD from the manufacturer?

If not, you need to borrow or obtain a Win7 installer of any version, extract the ISO, unlock all versions to burn to DVD or write to flashstick, then install your licensed version.

Activate Windows 7 by Phone

Partition Magic is obsolete with Windows 7 and destroys the partition structure as you found out.
