    post here the result of your


    command. If /dev/sda2 is the partition that contains your Linux and/or boot you can only unmount it if you boot from a cd.

    Assisted Solution

    mount | grep /dev/sda2 # will give You directory uner which this partition is mounted
    Say, it's /mnt/sda2
    lsof | grep /mnt/sda2 # will give You all processnames, who uses sny file/dir within /mnt/sda2 - shutdown them all
