It looks like there is a good explanation on how to deal with this issue:

Remove "nomodeset" in menu.lst and then enable "intel" driver in xorg.conf. I hope that helps.

Re: Network vs NetworkManager -- Best Practices?

I would not call the NetworkManager the plague. On the Server installation, without question, the network service would be the best choice. However, on the Desktops and especially laptops the NetworkManager serves it's purpose - provides easy and user friendly way to configure your network connectio...

Re: CentOS 7 no network devices

What I've figured, Red Hat has removed only binary kernel modules. Majority of firmware binaries are still in the system. In my case it was e100: /lib/firmware/e100/d101m_ucode.bin /lib/firmware/e100/d101s_ucode.bin /lib/firmware/e100/d102e_ucode.bin What was missing is - e100.ko. However, the drive...

Re: CentOS 7 no network devices

I wonder, what else Red Hat decided to remove? I have two NIC cards on my machine (3Com and Intel) and none of them is being recognized. Apparently, Red Hat removed 3c59x and e100 as well. All these cards worked just fine in previous releases and Fedora.

Re: What should my default gateway be?

If you do not need to access outside of your LAN, then it is safe to leave the default gateway blank. Default gateway is used for routing computer requests outside of the LAN. Any request from workstations will be broadcasted within network. Having DNS also makes little sense in your case, unless yo...
