I have two servers running Centos 7 on apple hardware (one mac-mini 
and one mac server).  They both failed to reboot a few days ago.  So 
perhaps whatever anti-boot bug hit Centos 8, also hit Centos 7.  I 
can't tell what version got updated since the system simply fails to 
boot.  I don't even get a grub screen.  I'll have to rebuild the 
systems from scratch.
