I've done two tests in VirtualBox:

1. First I tried to do an install  in EFI mode but the install process 
crashed . First I got the message displayed at 
http://wdl.lug.ro/shot0001.png and after a few seconds ( screen went 
completely blank ) the VM crashed.
2.  Second I did a non-EFI install, using an encrypted filesystem. 
Everything went smoothly, no problems at all. 
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=7293 did not manifest, as soon as the 
VM booted I was properly prompted for the password.

Worth mentioning maybe that if I enable EFI in the VM settings of the VM 
installed during the second test, it boots and lands in the UEFI 
interactive shell, only in the presence of the installer iso does it crash.
