[CentOS] CentOS 6.4 x86_64 VM Install freezes

I am trying to install a CentOS 6.4 x86_64 VM using a CentOS 5.9 x86_64
host, but its install has froze *twice*. What I am doing is to create a
10gig LVM volume, which I put a MS-DOS partition table on (using fdisk).
I then format the only partition to ext3, install grub and install the
pxeboot kernel and initrd.img and a simple grub.conf to load this.

I have the CentOS 6.4 x86_64 ISOs mounted (via loop) and exported as NFS file

                      3.6G  3.6G     0 100% /centos64i386/1
                      1.1G  1.1G     0 100% /centos64i386/2
                      4.1G  4.1G     0 100% /centos64x86_64/1
                      1.4G  1.4G     0 100% /centos64x86_64/2
sauron.deepsoft.com% sudo exportfs

I am able to boot up the installer and have it NFS mount the first DVD
and things go fine util it installs
selinux-policy-targeted-3.7.19-195.el6.noarch.  The VM is busy for a
while, then the CPU usage goes to zero and it just sits there.

What am I doing wrong?

This worked just fine with the 32-bit version of CentOS 6.4.

Is it because some package from the second disk is needed?  Do I have to
create a merged version of the DVDs?  Or is something else wrong?

And the VM's defination is here:
