Centos 6.4 kickstart installation not working

I trying to Automate installation of CentOS 6.4 -minimal with kickstart on a DVD

Below is my kick start that was auto generated by anaconda

# Kickstart file automatically generated by anaconda.

network --onboot no --device eth0 --bootproto dhcp --noipv6
rootpw --iscrypted $6$.tHtXJMs5GEzyQRm$52EX5ue3UuFC/zgencUbxuvwHXIPDuLmllkuNs4NRq7/Wa7FsI8ICxwPDsy/KnzSaUfEqfBROLAv0tPMksOhA1

#part /boot --fstype=ext4 --size=500
#part pv.008002 --grow --size=1

repo --name="CentOS" --baseurl=cdrom:sr0 --cost=100

%packages --nobase


The Problem what I'm facing When the ks.cfg tries to install packages from Repo that is in DVD

ERROR what I'm getting
Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to a missing repodata directory. Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly generated.

cannot find a valid baseurl for repo:CentOS


Is this a Bug is there any other way to automate the installation ?

Please Help me with this if there is any alternate solution to Automate the CentOS6.4 minimal

I have tried removing the line

repo --name="CentOS" --baseurl=cdrom:sr0 --cost=100

Problem still persists

then i tried changing to something like this

repo --name="CentOS" --baseurl=file:///mnt/source--cost=100
Problem still persists
