Hi,

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.

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
