    I have a touch screen on my PC and want to be able to boot XP without the keyboard or mouse connected. Is it possible to first, disable the keyboard and mouse in the BIOS and then disable them under XP?

    Thanks Richard

    I install systems for factory automation without a keyboard or mouse, so I'm sure it's possible. I install UltraVNC to allow remote control of the system, and we have USB keyboards and mice to pack around if we really want to tinker locally. Works just fine...
