That error usually means that the initrd is missing or broken.
You can try rebuilding it, or boot an older kernel and un-install and re-install the failed kernel.

Also, that kernel is from 6.4 which is from early 2013 and highly insecure and riddled with bugs. Run `yum update` ASAP to get up to date.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
Info for USB installs on
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
