Additional InformationTo fix it:
1 Open the iso
2 Rename the “isolinux” folder to “syslinux”.

4 Close the iso modified and burn a new DVD

And it works.

The "EDD: Error 0400 reading sector 2029128" line suggests that the DVD was bad and simply burning the same original image without changes on a different DVD could have fixed the problem. To verify this theory, insert the non-working DVD and run md5sum /dev/sr0. It'll report the md5sum and if it matches with the ISO md5sum, the DVD was burned correctly. If it does not match, there was some problem with the burn process. If you get any input/output errors while running md5sum, it's a proof that some parts of the DVD were unreadable.

Besides, CentOS 6.2 is out, try booting with it.

I too am having the same problem on a Supermicro SC823T with X6DH8-G2 mobo.

6.0 will boot, 6.1 and above won't. It seems to be syslinux version > 4

I tried to use the 6.2 x64 install disc for a SuperMico and it failed. I subsequently created a 6.4 install disc and this failed as well. I am not getting an EDD error or any reading sector problem.

The failure occurs right after the first line is printed :

ISOLINUX ..............

I tried this with an i386 as well as a x64 install disc and both failed.
My discs pass the checksum sha256sum tests without any problems reported.
Is there a work around for this?

Have a similar error on one dist. This is an install of Centos 6.4 under Virtualbox 4.2.12 using the ISO file as a virtual CD on a Windows 7 (current) host.

Centos 6.4 minimal works fine.

Centos 6.4 netinstall gets to the media selection (CD, harddisk, etc) and then won't read the disk any longer (OK/back prompt for "The CentOS disc was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the CentOS disc and press OK to retry"). Retrying only gets the same message.

Centos 6.4 DVD1 puts up an error almost immediately:

My next thing will be to try manipulating the iso as mjtrangoni did in the OP.

Have any of you tried what avij suggested to eliminate the possibility of a burn problem? Or just re-burn the same iso and see how it goes?

The forum user (see note 17534) reported that creating a new DVD solved the issue.
