Today via VirtualBox I try to install openSUSE from

But it fails at creating partitions:

Creating volume /dev/sda3
System error code was: -1008

In y2log I see:

2017-06-13 14:46:44 <1> install(3215) [libstorage]
SystemCmd Executing: "/usr/sbin/parted -s --wipesignatures --align=optimal
'/dev/sda' unit cyl mkpart primary ext2 2133 3263"
2017-06-13 14:46:46 <1> install(3215) [libstorage]
Adding Line 1 "Error: Error informing the kernel about modifications to
partition /dev/sda3 -- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know
about any changes you made to /dev/sda3 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't
mount it or use it in any way before rebooting."
2017-06-13 14:46:46 <1> install(3215) [libstorage]
Adding Line 2 "Error: Failed to add partition 3 (Device or resource busy)"

Note, that /dev/sda3 should be new ext4 partition, it suggested to be created
after shrinking /dev/sda2
