just felt into this trap.
I was trying to get a CentOS 6.5 on a new desktop PC (core-I3) in multi-boot beside the pre-installed W8.
At the moment, I did not find a way to overcome it.
Any idea or waorkaround for this issue would be welcome;

Give this updates image a try. Add updates=http://bcl.fedorapeople.org/updates/991620.img to the kernel cmdline when booting to use it.
It is better - anaconda requires /boot/efi
But message it use is misleading a bit. Anaconda complains that user hasn`t created /boot/efi partition, but with pre-existing one user has to reuse it - creating new does not help... and message is still the same - "You have not created /boot/efi partition"
*** Bug 1119383 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
OK, message is still same "You have not created /boot/efi partition" but it works.
