Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

Your problem is difficult to understand. If you are trying to boot into DOS on a USB Flash Drive: 1. It must be formatted FAT-32/Bootable, 2. Have 'DOS' installed on it.

If you're trying to modify your BIOS then sure use a PS/2 Keyboard "oldschool keboard" but some MOBO's use different keys to access the BIOS; see ->

Good Luck! :)

Try a different Keyboard, often USB Keyboards simply won't function until a driver is thrown at it. A PS/2 Keyboard is your best bet. All the systems I build that have a PS/2 port I use a PS/2 Keyboard and those that don't I use a basic USB Keyboard that does work. In this case less is more. For keyboards with an 'F Lock' try pressing that to properly access the Function keys e.g. F1-F12.
