Anyone installed CentOS 7 with AMD Milan CPUs, like EPYC 7543?
Our project have to keep CentOS 7, but we want to try the PCIe gen4.

I have CentOS 7 running on a pair of Dell R6515 machines with an AMD EPYC 7543P. I believe that's "Milan".

The only problem I had with them was nothing to do with EPYC, they introduced a new remote console type into the iDRAC and it does not work with linux. I had to flip it from whatever the default was to HTML5 (I think the failing one was eHTML5 maybe). With the default eHTML5 it was unable to boot up.
CentOS 8 died a premature death at the end of 2021 - migrate to Rocky/Alma/OEL/Springdale ASAP.
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 and 6 are dead, do not use them.
Use the FAQ Luke

Hi, TrevorH
We have confirmed that CentOS7.9 supports the SuperMicro 4124GS-TN with two AMD EPYC 7453. It works well with our new server.
