On non-broken operating systems, the normal procedure when making a kernel.org kernel is:
make xconfig (or the configuration program of your preference)
Configure the kernel to your liking.
make clean; make; make modules_install install
However, under CentOS 6 you'll get missing module complaints, and under CentOS 7, it will scribble your boot partition rendering your machine unbootable until you re-install grub2.
So on these machines:
make clean; make; make modules_install
cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-(version)
cp System.map /boot/System.map-version
cp .config /boot/config-version
mkinitrd /boot/initramfs-(version).img (version)
On CentOS 6, hand edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to add the new kernel
On CentOS 7 type:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
You should be able to boot your new kernel now.
