I have just installed a wireless keyboard and mouse from A4Tech, replacing my cord variety keyboard and mouse.

However, now I cannot dual boot between W2K and W98 or for that matter select any of the modes available when booting into W2K eg safe mode

My partition manager is Partion Magic ver 7.

I have contacted A4Tech and done as they suggested, and that was not much help. They advised to download a new device driver and install (which I have done). If that doesn't work then reinstall OS. I am not going to go that far.

I am at the stage of taking the keyboard and mouse back to where I purchased tham and ask for a refund.

However before I do, can you offer any help or is this a problem with all wireless keyboards ie it is too early in the bootup process for the OS to recognise a keyboard attached to the USB port.

Cheers

It could depend on your BIOS support as to your motherboard being capable of supporting USB without drivers loaded?

Do you have a BIOS option for legacy USB support, and is it enabled?

All is go.

I changed the BIOS setting and it worked a treat.

Thanks for your quick response.

Cheers
