    Hey, like most of you reading this, you will have had some trouble with the installation of Windows xp, i beleive i have found a solution for this.
    step 1 - Head into the bios setting and find the usb legacy option, enable this and turn off the pc after saving.
    step 2 - this could be difficult and may differ depending on what kind of system you are using, you have to find out which ports(if any) are usb 2.0 and 3.0 as xp can only use usb 2.0 and will NOT recognise 3.0.
    After you have plugged the keyboard into a usb 2.0 port then you may turn your pc on once more.
    step 3 - run the installation and you should now have keyboard access.

    I hope this helped!
