switching back to text console error during centos installation

I was trying to dual-boot CentOS 6 on my laptop that is currently running Windows 8. I have two storage devices, an SSD that has my Windows installation, and an HDD that has all of my data. Both are formatted using GPT, and Windows boots using UEFI. I used the CentOS 6.5 live CD (CentOS-6.5-x86_64-LiveCD.iso) to create an EFI-bootable flash drive (it does boot properly in EFI mode). I receive an error, however, when CentOS is booting (error is below).

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Pid: 1, comm: init Not tainted 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64 #1

drm_kms_helper: panic occurred, switching back to text console

Solution : To fix this, go under the EFI folder in your USB stick, then find those files ending with *.conf and use a text editor to change the root= to your USB device. In my case, it is some things like live:UUID=UUID_OF_Partition. How to find UUID of a USB Drive : you can use the following command if you have a linux system.

#sudo blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="69C2-59F8" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/sda2: UUID="3378cbd8-7df1-451f-b475-d3dbf95edf35" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda3: UUID="dd505d50-43e8-4d5c-9543-4df4edbff790" TYPE="swap" 

Or you can go the properties of your USB Drive & name will be the UUID of that USB Drive.
Name :   UUID=69C2-59F8

Then your content to put in *.conf  files will become : live:UUID=69C2-59F8. Another note to take care is instead of install using UNetBootIn or ISO2USB, we can actually use Fedora Live USB Creator. The good thing about use linux is that you can find your USB device’s UUID under syslinux\syslinux.cfg.
