No idea why. I also don't recall if the openSUSE installer will
even try to shrink the NTFS version that is created by Win7.

Is 160 gig the minimum disk size for Windows 7? I bought a Win 7
laptop with 360 gig drive and Windows shrunk it's partition down to
180 with no issues. 160 gig is about the size of the hard drive, as
I recall, in my Dell Duo netbook/tablet with Win 7 Home Premium on

No, I could shrink my W7 much further. I think it said something like
20 gigs, but I left much more.

But I had to use the boot rescue native of the laptop to "reinstall"
windows fresh without any updates or modifications (or backup aka
restore points), so that there are no unmovable files in the middle of
the partition. That's the reason it refuses to shrink further.
