I just built a new system and when I try to install windows 7 for the first time on the bare HDD the keyboard and mouse do not work. I can't click "Next" in the windows installation process. The keyboard functionas correctly in the BIOS and both keyboard and mouse are shown as detected in the BIOS. Is there some settings in the BIOS that need to be configured before using the keyboard and mouse for windows installation?
I have a Razer Lycosa usb keyboard and Death Adder usb mouse. Here are my system specs:
Processor Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield Motherboard ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 RAM CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB Graphics Card EVGA 768-P3-1360-TR GeForce GTX 460 Power Supply CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750WPLUS Tower Case NZXT Apollo Black Hard Drive Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I had a similar problem ones and had to change to a an old PS2 keyboard I had laying around.
usb legacy support -> on perhaps
are you plugging in your keyboard to the native usb 2.0 ports?
unplug and plug them back in while your in setup
perhaps reset cmos
Had the same issue too.
I had my mouse and KB plugged into the 3.0
Put them into the 2.0 at the front of case, works fine now
