Solved

can i use a wireless keyboard and mouse set for when im first installing windows?

Have a wireless logitech keyboard and mouse and im going through the windows install/setup today or tomorrow, can i plug the wireless receiver straight in and use it to set up? Or do i have to borrow the wired mouse and keyboard off the old computer until i can get into windows to download drivers? Or do i run the driver cd for wireless set before windows?

need help as first time build nearly finished,

many thanks in advance

    You are good.
    Windows install will support usb connected mice and keyboards. That is exactly what you have.
    The usb wireless receiver is essentially a usb connection to your devices.
  2. I did exactly this about a month ago. Windows and the PC sees it as USB. They do not know or care that the receiver gets its signal via bluetooth or 2.4.

    It will work.

    thank you again :) i was hoping that would be the case but thought maybe you would need a properly wired set for install.
