    Outsource it. If you can buy 200 VPS, you can hire someone to do the job for you. If not, good luck. Maybe someone can write a script for it.

    You just need to run this command and come back after 10 minute.

    Command 1:
    yum install screen -y

    Once Installation complete then run
    Command 2:
    screen

    Command 3:
    yum groups install "GNOME Desktop" -y


    You can close screen session and come back after 10 minute or 1 hours and your gnome gui will be installed and you can use GUI.

    If GUI does not come then type this command
    init 5

    When your using above method, do verify whether the GNOME installation is still running or not.

    So do Screen -r first and check.
    To detach Screen use Ctrl + A + D :)

    If you didn't installed yum package(Few companies provide the auto with cent os installation), then do make sure you do wget yum package :)

    You could use pssh which would be warmly recommanded when you have a lot of servers that would allow you to execute the same command over all your servers at once :

    If your VPS are based on Openvz you could also ask you provider to do it since they can do it all at once (on a per node basis)

    You can install a Desktop environment using yum groupinstall. If you're running CentOS 6, you can try one of:
    yum groupinstall Desktop
    yum groupinstall "KDE Desktop"
    yum groupinstall Xfce

    to install the default GNOME Desktop, KDE or Xfce respectively. Use
    Code:
    yum grouplist
