Hi All,

Hopefully someone with broad overview of CentOS compatibility issues can 
comment on this:

I am evaluating a Supermicro X10SLM motherboard with an Intel E3-1231 v3 
CPU. Testing with boots from Live DVDs, the CentOS 6.x family is panicking 
at boot time. I have tried 6.8, 6.5, and 6.3, and each one panics at 
slightly different points, but they all seem to fail after udev starts up 
(or tries to).

On the other hand, I was able to boot CentOS 7.0 1511 from the Live CD.

According to the compatibility chart over here:
...anything later than 6.3 (6.4 and up) should work with the E3-12xx v3 
family of processors. But those are not the results I am seeing.

Does anyone have experience or commentary on this compatibility issue?
