I am replacing the 500GB hard drive in my Acer Aspire V5-131 laptop that has Win7 on it with a new 500GB hard drive so I can try Ubuntu 14.04 on.

I am assuming that I will need to use GPart to create and size the partitions and assuming that NTFS is OK.
My laptop hard disk got crashed. But until I replace I want to do my home works. So I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on 16GB Kingston DT101 G2 pen drive.
My question is, using my pen drive as my regular disk for 1 or 2 weeks is that OK ? Will I get any problems in my pen drive? After I replace my hard disk can I use that pen drive as normal ( just assume I will use my laptop at least 12 hours per day).

Problem in installing Ubuntu after CentOS 7.0: I have a laptop with a hard disk around 170Gb. After installing CentOS 7.0 I tried to install the Ubuntu 14.04 alongside with the CentOS 7.0. The Ubuntu installer could not recognise the existing CentOS 7.0 and I could not shrink the exisitng drive.
Will change of installation sequence helps (remove the CentOS 7.0 and install Ubuntu first)?
