I was trying to reinstall fedora on a multiboot(windows+fedora) system when it crashed and gave a "grub rescue" error. So i tried to reinstall fedora 20 by deleting and reclaiming the windows volume. Now the whole of 100 gb associated to that volume is unaccessible and shows the following error when i try to format it.Please help!!

"Error unmounting /dev/dm-2: Command-line `umount "/dev/dm-2"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: umount: /home: target is busy (In some cases useful info about processes that use the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1).) (udisks-error-quark, 14)"

This is probably a problem with the lvm partition scheme. Try to use the standard partition. Maybe someone knows a workaround for this. I don't. I don't use lvm at all.

Its okay, I managed a makeshift technique by setting the BIOS setup to default and reinstalling. Thanks a lot anyways. Please feel free to give any other suggestions.
