seems as though you know just enough to be dangerous.

- <Control><Alt><F2> to get a virtual console

- 'First boot' wants you to create a regular user and if you abort the
first boot, it will be harder for you to create that user.

- CentOS is a derivative of RHEL which pretty much follows Fedora path.

I would suggest that you would get farther with an open mind and work
with the systems in place or if you really don't like them, try another
distribution.
