Sure, I can umount /usr/local and comment it out of fstab, my comment

take the most conservative route and make folks aware of any and all 
possible ways that it might fail.

The report also listed a driver for an Ethernet card that was not 
supported in CentOS 7 which does make the software useful for 
identifying things like that.

All in all I think that it's worthwhile to run the software to see what 
it finds so that you can be aware of the types of issues that you might 
run into.

I agree that doing an upgrade using this method would be a bit of a last 
resort, I might try it just to see how it goes, just for the heck of it, 
but ultimately a re-install is best as it get's rid of all the chaff as

Unencumbered by the thought process.
