Intel CPU model - this hardware has not undergone upstream testing

Post by erez.gabbay » 2019/06/24 11:44:25

Hi,
I install CentOS7 on Atom EE3950 everything is working but on boot I get the following message:
Detected CPU family 6 model 92 stepping 9
Warining: Intel CPU model - this hardware has not undergone upstream testing

Can it be fixed or can I ignore this message?
I saw on intel site a microcode that can be added: https://github.com/intel/Intel-Linux-Pr ... Data-Files
Is it relevant to fix this issue?

Thanks
Erez

I guess it means that the hardware you are using has not been well tested by upstream (i.e.: the original developers).

No, this has nothing to do with microcode. It's that the cpuid of your processor is not in the list of validated ones in the kernel. You can usually ignore the message.

What is the output from uname -r ?
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!
