[CentOS] Need help

This is a wild guess since the problem I had occurred on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but the symptoms are identical.  Try 'systemctl enable console-getty.service' then 'systemctl start console-getty.service' or, if it is headless (serial console only), 'systemctl enable serial-getty at ttyS0.service' then 'systemctl start serial-getty at ttyS0.service' assuming it's ttyS0).  For VMs (specifically kvm/qemu) neither of these "solutions" worked.

I figured out that the system boots OK and it is possible
to login remotely. However the monitor does not start up.

Do you know how to fix it?
