IIS is only available in Home Premium and higher editions of Windows 7. Please read Technet Windows 7 Editions and Features:

Windows 7 Home Basic does not contain the full features for IIS Server. You need to upgrade the Windows Operating System to get the additonal features.

AS IIS 7 is not install by default on some version on window 7 and specifically as you have window 7 Home basic edition just want to tell you that window 7 Home Basic edition even dont contain all the feature of IIS. Home Basic edition of IIS will contain only few features of IIS .

The list of available feature on IIS 7 Home Basic edition you can check here :

And still after checking you want to run IIS on Home Basic editon you need to download IIS express which you get from (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=1038)

and then after have a look here : http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/28/installing-iis-on-windows-vista-and-windows-7/
