I have personally always had the best luck by installing the Live CD, and then customizing the installation from there.  This also gives you a quick way to test if the hardware you are installing to is compatible with the version of Centos that you're installing since the Live CD boots and comes up with a working desktop or it does not.

In fact and coincidentally, I just set up a Centos 6.8 image on VirtualBox last night using the Live CD with no issues.
