Make sure that you have the keyboard plugged in before you turn on the machine. Start hitting DEL, after the beep, to see if you can get into the BIOS. Is the keyboard wireless or wired?

Well, you got into the BIOS, so the keyboard is working. You have to have the OS disk in the drive to continue.

If you want a USB keyboard to work on things that require PS/2 keyboards, such as DOS/etc, turn on "USB Legacy Device Emulation" in BIOS.

Change your USB ports. This mobo will have both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports. Connect to the 2.0 ports.
