That is correct.

Check your BIOS/UEFI settings of there is anything preventing
the system to boot from USB (like rescricted boot "Secure Boot").

What exactly does it start then?

That looks like you're describing a Linux boot manager,
maybe GRUB? Can you be more specific?

I think the age doesn't matter. Knowledge and experience do. :-)

That is really terrible. Maybe they forgot something important?
Has the hardware been verified to support Linux and FreeBSD?

That looks like a major fsck-up. :-)

In any normal Linux, BSD, Solaris or UNIX, you create a user
account and work with that account. Only exceptional actions
should require root permissions.

Check if the ISP you're using is blocking normal e-mail. Yes,
this happens sometimes, believe it or not.

You should be able to switch windows using Alt+Tab, a key
combination understood by most window managers and desktop
environments. After all, it seems like the system they have
been installing for you are heavily misconfigured. And can
you rule out any hardware failure?
