Trying to install CentOS from USB flash drive but will not boot after install

Trying to install CentOS 6.2 from USB flash drive but will not boot after install. I'm really trying to install PBX in a Flash with comes with and within a CentOS distro ISO.
Hardware: Shuttle Atom Nettop, SSD 32 GB as the only drive.
Making the bootable USB goes fine. I use windows and ISO2USB software for that. It's made especially for CentOS/RedHat.
I know there is a trick with designating the USB stick as sda and the Hard drive as sdb, but I can't get it to work. CentOS is supposed to do something unusual by putting the USB stick on sda when booted from it. After the install I get just a blank screen with a blinking cursor. If I then again boot from the USB stick CentOS loads. Is the bootloader getting installed on the wrong drive?
It is supposed to boot up and auto-start the asterisk/PBX installation.
