    @rdan did you ever get an official reason why CentOS 7 wasn't available?

    Seems it could of been hardware compatibility as some new servers have CentOS 7 listed now

    Intel Xeon E-2386 Rocket Lake

    Unfortunately, AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is CentOS 8 only

    I have bought a server, which doesn’t have CentOS 7 in the list although when you buy it and come to install, you can install it.

    Although i don’t guarantee this will work with all servers, so if you’re getting a server without CentOS 7 in the list I recommend to not get commitment for that server, so you can cancel it

    Hope this helps :)

    Thanks for the info!

    I see, fingers crossed newer servers don't have such issues!

    OVH only does custom made servers these days? Isn't it?
    Then you can forget it with CentOS 7 and Centminmod.

    New hardware is a guarantee of no CentOS 7 :( and thus NO Centminmod.
    Due to the chip crisis, it is very difficult to get EL 7 certified servers ou at all at the moment.

    That would certainly make things more difficult to determine OS compatibility.
    It's probably just the hardware they use. And probably now due to shortages they probably are using more variety of hardware vendors other than their standard ones.
