comment Run CentOS 6 from a USB flash drive
sorry, but I can't assume that. I did some experiences a few years back but that was it. Nowadays, I believe it should be a lot simpler. can't you just installing into a usb pen, just like the minimal version to be faster and then try to boot it?

comment Run CentOS 6 from a USB flash drive
from USB I don't remember if it is possible or not. But for sure from a external drive is possible as long as you computer allows you to boot from such disk.
