    I haven't tried these myself, but here is the Wiki on that topic.

    I have CentOS 6.4 x86_64 bin DVD1.iso (4.05 GB) installed on one USB with Linux Live USB creator.
    On the other USB I installed CentOS 6.4 x86_64-bin DVD2.iso (1.35 GB) with a Linux live USB cretor.
    When installing CentOS with the first USB to PC appeared warning that they can not continue the installation because it lacks ISO 9660th.

    Have you tried making a bootable CentOS install thumb drive using UNetbootin? It is pretty reliable.

    I tried the UNetbootin to install CentOS DVD1 and DVD2 iso with USB and can not
    UNetBootin job for CentOS DVD1iso properly.
    The problem arises when you need to inject CentOS DVD2 iso.

    did you burn DVD2 properly (as an ISO image and not as a data DVD)?

    oh, right, that is why you are using USB...have you verified that the 2nd DVD ISO image downloaded properly? The first thing to do is just make sure it is roughly the right size; it should be around 1.4GB. Next would be to verify the checksum of the file. Get the MD5 checksum file for your distro here, then run the following command to verify your file:

    Code:
    md5sum /path/to/CentOS-6.4-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso
    Compare the output of that command to the appropriate line in the md5sum.txt file you downloaded.

    i see you're on Windows. to verify the checksum of the downloaded ISO file, you can use the FCIV utility, e.g., put fciv.exe in %WINDIR%\system32\, open a cmd prompt and:
    Code:
    fciv c:\path\to\CentOS-6.4-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso
    also, do you *need* to use DVD 2 to make the bootable USB thumbdrive? You could always just worry about the additional packages after you get the system installed. Will you have internet access on the box during/after the install?

    You could instead use either the netboot (if you will have internet access) or the minimal CentOS install images:

    Code:
    CentOS-6.4-x86_64-minimal.iso         05-Mar-2013 09:45  342M
    CentOS-6.4-x86_64-netinstall.iso      04-Mar-2013 16:05  230M
