Hi shadon fan,
which EVC mode is your machine/cluster using?
This sounds very much like this problem here: https://developers.redhat.com/blog/2021/01/05/building-red-hat-enterprise-linux-9-for-the-x86-64-v2-microarchitecture-level

Hi Lukas Magauer,

The EVC mode is Intel® "Merom" Generation

The Esxi cluster include the following cpus: Intel(R) Xeon(R) X5650, E5-2697 v2, E5-2670, and E5-2640 v4

Okay yes this is definitely the problem, you need at least EVC mode "Nehalem" to make Rocky Linux 9 work. (SSE 4.2 is required)
