Could you try with CentOS 7.8?

Edit: How did you create the usb?

Hi, I used "UltraIso" , the usb boot works well in my Intel-based computer but didn't work well on the AMD one.

7.6 is probably too old. Try 7.8. It installed on my Ryzen system.

First IF YOU HAVE ONE the best way is simply install it from a DL DVD... but in this day and age the DVD is going the way of dinosaurs such as the 3.5" floppy and the 5.25" floppy. Assuming you do not have access to a DVD or Blue Ray R+W and can ONLY do the install via a USB, I would become familiar with the dd command and not some strange program. See here:

How to Set Up a USB Key to Install CentOS

https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey

The basic for the dd command is like this:

Starting with CentOS 6.5, one can install from USB keys by simply transferring the desired ISO using dd.

For example, assuming your USB stick is seen as /dev/sdz (please double check what yours is, do not blindly assume /dev/sdz as you may overwrite something irretrievably):

dd if=CentOS-6.5-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso of=/dev/sdz


Notice they say:

"Applications known (2019) that do NOT work are: unetbootin, multibootusb and universal usb installler - do NOT use these. Also Rufus does not work correctly if the wrong options are chosen so the tool is best avoided." whether "UltraIso" falls in this group or not I don't know, that said the dd command is simple to use and works all the time.
