You can't partition disks without GUI in cent 6. Rendering the install
basically useless.

Cent/RHEL/etc it actually has some flags in it that disable a graphical
install; however, during the install you can install X and other graphical
utilities that should work once the system comes up (I’ve never tested it
though because we don’t put a GUI on any of our servers).  And as far as
Cent 6.3 compatibility, while it’s not on the list it doesn’t mean it will
break either.  We had an issue with XS 5.6 that Cent 6 wouldn’t install so
we worked around the issue by installing it on XS 6, downloaded the vhd
image, and imported it in and everything ran fine.  I’m not suggested this
is a *supported* way to go, but it’s been solid for us so far.

I am attempting to install Centos 6.3 on on XS 6.02 Hypervisors with all
the latest Hotfixes. I am able to utilize the console, but the default
console is text only. I am not given the option at boot time to perform a
graphical install. I have tested this through XenCenter console and CPVM. I
am running CS4.
