We explicitly construct an SO(10) GUT using a global description of the geometry and find two interesting properties: first, at the point of expected E7 enhancement where the Yukawa interaction is generated, we see that there are not enough irreducible compo- nents in the resolved singular fiber to yield an E7 structure; second, upon constructing the G-flux for this GUT, we see that it is not possible, in general, to satisfy the quan- tization condition. This leads to a set of extra conditions on the geometry to allow for the required quantization. We then look at an E7 GUT using a similar construction.
