I install Centos on pretty much everything by setting the bios to use USB as the primary boot device, then booting the Centos Live Image from a flash drive, then hitting the "install to hard drive" icon on the Live Desktop.  After the installation is complete, set the bios back to use the hard drive as the primary boot device and you're all set.
