then you have no other option than to run some OS inside a VM, e.g. any Live CD of some Linux flavor

comment Is it possible to run a thin client in virtualbox?
VirtualBox creates a VM that has nothing but CPU, RAM and configured devices, so it is assumed that you install the OS inside. Thus, no thin client is possible.

comment Found Duplicate PV in LVM disk scan
Then I have no recipe as it seems you can't do with this VM whatever you like - you only can mount the volumes you have. As an alternative, boot a VM from that old image, copy the files you need to some other location (ftp, your local site, e.t.c.)

comment Install Linux on RAID system or outside in separate partition?
Why not to get benefits of storing rootfs on RAID? Even should you have problems to boot due to any reason you always may try to recover with any bootable LiveCD of your choice.

comment Found Duplicate PV in LVM disk scan
Then it is very strange that you have duplicate UUIDs. The hosting company does its job in a lazy way: it seems they just copy the pre-created image and do not care on possible conflicts. See the answer I will post shortly

comment Found Duplicate PV in LVM disk scan
Is this extra disk image just a byte-by-byte copy of your disk attached to /dev/sda that has been created while ago? What vgdisplay shows?

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.

please tell, how exactly did you create the Fedora's USB stick (I am not a fan of other mentioned distros, but may give some advice on Fedora)
