Heres a suggestion that sounds really stupid but just might work. On a brand new computer i went to switch it from windows 7 back to xp. I had to change the BIOS of course from AHCI to Compatable etc. All went well untill i got to the part where i had to hit F8 for the EULA agreement. I kept hitting it and thought this is a brand new computer what on earth is wrong with the keyboard?Finally i went back into the BIOS and checked under the keyboard settings and it was set for multifunction. I set it to single function and was able to proceed without further problems. This was on a dell inspiron laptop.I dont know if anyother brand has that option to change the keyboard settings but you can check and see if it solves the problem.
