Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone knew what settings in the BIOS or Windows XP Pro to configure so that I can boot up my computer using my USB keyboard (Logitech Wave Wireless). It has a "Power" button, but even when I enabled the boot from keyboard setting in BIOS, nothing happens.

Thanks,
JY

Boot from kb in the BIOS is to do exactly that, turn on and boot the computer by pressing a key on the kb to start the computer. But, this is not the option you want...

Go into the BIOS, the Integrated Peripherals section to enable the USB controller, enable the USB 2.0 controller, and enable USB keyboard.

Lastly, RTFM!!!!!!!! Specifically, page 53!

Page 54 of your manual:

Power On By Keyboard
Allows the system to be turned on by a PS/2 keyboard wake-up event.
Note: you need an ATX power supply providing at least 1A on the +5VSB lead.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I did read my manual before I asked. All the USB options were already enabled in the Integrated Peripherals section before I even bothered asking. So is it not possible to boot with an USB keyboard?
