Are you sure your iso image md5sums ok? How are you using the iso image - burning it to DVD? or usb stick or attaching it to the iLO virtual media?

Burned to USB Flash.

The check sums appear to be ok. The image passes check on file transfer and when burned to the USB stick.

You don't "burn" to a USB stick.
Explain EXACTLY how you installed the ISO on the USB stick.

To install the iso image to usb I use Universal USB Installer. Have also used Unbootin as well with same result.

I get the same result with RHEL 7.0 and Centos 7.0 install attempts. Screen shot in the attachment...

With a Centos 6.5 install I get into the install but at the point of partitioning the hard drive it gives me an error saying unable to find the ISO image, copy it to the disk (this although I have booted off of the iso on the USB.

With RHEL 6.5 I am successful for the entire install

I have two identical HP DL160 and get the same result with both

The only supported way to copy the ISO to a usb flash drive is to dd the ISO directly to the drive. That means the drive itself, not a partition.

The screenshot you posted shows pretty much what happens when you copy the iso to a USB stick in the wrong way...
