Hello then reset the password user "root", when you restart the server on Centos 7 , I have the following error:
"Piix4_smbus 0000: 00: 07: 3: Host SMBus controller not enabled!"
as I can solve this problem to start the operating system.

It is just warning. If you dont like it:

echo blacklist i2c_piix4 >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf
echo blacklist intel_rapl >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf

Then after clean reboot (i.e without any upgrade)
run dracut -f
and reboot again.

None of 2 modules has any function whatsoever in vmware and do not influence boot chain.
Most likely you dont run on virtual hardware 9+ or with wrong system profile and system boots 100x slower than it should.

If the host operating system is virtualized, then this problem occurs because the SMbus is not emulated on the VM.  (There's little reason a emulate the SMbus on a VM because the VM "hardware" doesn't exist.)

There are several discussions of this issue around  which occurs commonly on RedHat and Centos virtualized systems.  The solution is to blacklist the SMbus controller (see below).
