I have an old computer that I am trying to reformat. When I get to "press any key to boot from CD", it won't work cause I'm using a USB mouse. It just boots into Windows. When I try plugging in a PS/2 keyboard it doesn't work (in the mouse port either). I need to do a fresh install, but if I can't hit a button to boot from CD then I don't see how I can do this. I made the CD-ROM the first boot device and all other boot devices disabled.

have you tried leaving the mouse out & using a regular keyboard... i think you said you did that but just checking, maby you can update your bios for the computer contact your vendor and see what they can do to help you with that althought ive never contacted a vendor for that information they may not want to help you with that... you may do better searching for updated bios for your system & posting a new topic to ask if it would be compatiable for your system (this is very important updating to the wrong bois could leave your system unbootable)
