Vortex86SX integrates the RISC core that contains all the features of
the 486SX microprocessor, and the instruction set of Vortex86SX is
compatible with 486 as well, so please directly select 486 as the
processor family in the Linux kernel setting.

CentOS does *not* support that processor class, for CentOS 5 you need
i686 upwards (as even i586 does not work).
