Surprised and disappointment by Installation of CentOS7

In the past, Red Hat/Centos had been really good in installation, equal to Windows.

Re: CentOS 6.5 Crashes Repeatedly, While 6.4 Has Been Stable

Thanks vonskippy for pointing out the possibility of corrupt hard drive. The problem is that Seagate and Western Digital does not release diagnostic software for Linux, only for Windows and DOS.

CentOS 6.5 Crashes Repeatedly, While 6.4 Has Been Stable

Hi, I have used CentOS 6.4 on my Lenovo TS130 for the last several months without rebooting and without any problem. After I have a clean install of CentOS 6.5 on another hard disk drive, it seems fine for several days. Strange things happened after I started to use the latest version of VirtualBox....
