USB Keyboard and mouse + formatting issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • My PS/2 ports are broken for mouse and keyboard, and as a fix, I am using USB for both input devices.

    Windows took time to detect these when I plugged them.

    I'm thinking of formatting my PC. Will the keyboard still work during the installation process of windows XP? I mean, will Windows, eventhough it is running on a CD, getting installed, detect my mouse and keybord so they can work and I can input the reg code?

    Thanks, people!

  • Hi,

    This is the forum for Windows Home Server, not XP. However, XP should recognise a USB keyboard/mouse with no problems whatsoever.
