comment How do I use Ctrl + Fn + Num on XFCE
As far as I know the Fn key is not serviced by the OS - it is implemented in hardware, so I am surprised that you have it working with Gnome and not working with XFCE

I think, the problem is not with your notebook, but with the process of bootable usb creation under Windows with Live USB creator.

comment Can't boot Linux from usb on Thinkpad W540
Long time ago when I used to be a windows-addicted, there were the utility dskprobe in Windows NT Resource Kit. Among other things that utility allows to copy a file to a raw device. Unfortunately, I cant tell what is available now. As for Fedora - they strongly discourage to use Linux Live USB exactly due to unpredictable results.

Don't use Linux live USB with Fedora images! just do dd if=cdrom.iso of=/dev/sdX (yes, to the root node of your usb stick, not to any subnode for a partition)

comment How do I install an older version of Apache httpd in CentOS 6 using YUM
I think you need to build from sources, as the one available in updates even older than the one that you need.
