On the other hand, I've done USB installs of other distros that worked just

to put a partition on your hard drive, downloading a CentOS iso to the
partition, mounting it as a loopback, chrooting into it, and seeing where
you could go from there. Totally untested for CentOS, but something like
that should work.

Or if you have a Windows box to set up from, I've found other recipes from
this site useful in the past:
