Are you seriously yanking my crank?

Your link is titled "Installing XenServer 6.2.0 from a USB Stick"
A comment says b6a5ce472a0010f5847669e624f06326 XenServer-6.5.0-xenserver.org-install-cd.iso was used.
Which unfortunately is twice what you've told us, which is NOTHING.

I tried to make a bootable "thingie" using <software> on <platform> with this XenServer-<version>.iso
would be more suited for this suicide note of a topic.

Frustrated.

You have something like:
http://downloadns.citrix.com.edgesui...install-cd.iso

How did you "burn" this image, if you have one?

I found some post on XenServer forum for Version 6.5 and all posts refer to the github.com link. I use "dd" but not worked

It might be a good idea if you were to outline all the steps you took before the error occurred, including url's from where you downloaded files, the names of the files, the versions you are using, the exact command lines you issued (not just "I used dd") etc.

Treat it like a list of instructions or recipe:

I am using Linux zzzz, version yyyy, flavour (e.g. desktop environment) xxxx.

The aim of the exercise is to produce a live disk of Linux kkkk version jjjj, flavour dddd.

(i) I downloaded xxx.iso from http://www.example.com to my Desktop.

(ii) I inserted a USB stick into my computer and used the the command zzzzzz.

etc...

Without going too much further, I would expect a disk titled "XenServer-6.2.0-install-cd.iso to not contain a full-blown CentOS installation.
I would choose a netintall not "local media", using Setup CentOS 6.8 Netinstall URL
eg:

Example mirrors.sonic.net-CentOS6
[URL="http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2010/centos-netinstall-network-installation/"]Example CentOS 5
to complete the CentOS installation.

If the USB boot and prompts you to install CentOS, then I believe you did the burn correctly and the CentOS
portion of the environment needs to be completed.

I used Debian OS wheezy and I like to create a XenServer 6.5 USB boot. I download the .ISO file from from XenServer website and did below command :

# dd if=<file> of=<device> bs=4M; sync

USB booted but XenServer can't detect Local Media for install. This command work for XenServer 7 very good.

I get the feeling that when you created the usb the problem is that your usb is not acting like a cd/dvd anymore.
