I have to mantain some LAN, legacy servers, with Centos 6.10 64 bit. They are virtualized under HyperV and all is working fine until the last kernel update (2.6.32-754.22.1).

Problem: something is broken, the servers boot but with the old kernel 2.6.32-754.18.2.

This is the configuration of one of the servers, they are similar except for the size of the partitions.

I hope these info are sufficient to troubleshoot what's wrong.
