Make your HP recovery discs, then you can delete the HP recovery partition.

 

How to make recovery discs

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01895783#WhenCreate

 

Or

 

See this guide on having more than 4 partitions.

 

http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-Notebook-PC-Questions/How-to-repartition-HDD-of-HP-notebook-with-...

 

 

It is advised to make your Recovery discs anyway, before you try anything with partitions.
