The machine is an Inspiron 5423, using Windows 7 (sp1). I was attempting to install from a live cd (openSuse, 13.2 ). After researching thei issue on the Suse forums, I shrank the Win partition and created
a new extended partition with three sub partitions, at the suggestion of one of the Suse contributors.
Either way, with or without the newly created partitions, the suse installer, and partitioner would not access
the hard drive, sda, stating "the resuouce is busy". Is there a way to get around this problem?
Sorry about the double spacing, it just happened, but I get that in wordpad a lot also.
