A number of drivers have been disabled in RHEL/CentOS-7. As explained
in Ned's post, forcedeth is one of them. Why do we know that's the
right driver? The OP provided the deviceID pairing [10DE:0760]. You
can find it in ELRepo's web page at http://elrepo.org/tiki/DeviceIDs .

By the way there is a request to enable it in the centosplus kernel (
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=7359 ), so it will be there in the
next kernel update.
