Can't F8 at boot on Vista 64...


I can't F8 on the boot screen nor does my keyboard work when Vista recovers from an error and asks if I want to start in safe mode and such. I just have to let it tick down from 30 sec to start Windows. I've got my logitech multimedia USB keyboard and an older Compaq mini-DIN keyboard and neither works. Even tried to put an adapter on the logitech in case it was a USB issue. Neither works. Is this a BIOS issue? I don't see a BIOS/OS keyboard or mouse legacy option in the BIOS like my last build. Anyone know a solution?

Try enabling USB keyboard support in BIOS.

Oops. That was the problem. I just had to search a little more in the BIOS to find it. Thanks.
