You are limited to 4 primary partitions so you would have to add the space to one of the 4 you already have or get rid of one of those 4.

The fact is, you don't need the system partition so you could try deleting that. Though you should have a W7 recovery disk handy because W7 may have boot issues the next time you try, in which case, simply run the startup repair and you should be OK.

Once you reboot and only have 3 partitions, then you can allocate the free space as an extended partition and then within the extended partition you can create two logical partitions.

The RECOVERY partition shouldn't be messed with, it will help if your system needs restored.

As for the HP Tools, you might not need it but maybe you should ask HP support why it's there because maybe it is useful.

By the way, you link doesn't work; please edit your post to fix it.
