Thread: USB drivers before boot.

  1. #1
    I have a dual boot. Ubuntu and Vista Ultimate 32bit.

    My USB drivers are being handled by the OS, not the BIOS. I have a USB Keyboard and Mouse. When the dual boot screen comes up the USB drivers aren't loaded so i can't choose what OS i want to boot. If i connect a PS/2 driven Keyboard there is no issues.

    How do I load the USB drivers without the OS support. I haven't throughly checked my BIOs to see if there are any options to enable the drivers however i am guessing that it would be enabled by default if it was available.

    I slightly remember added mouse support to XP's recovery console at one point in time. I am guessing this process with be similar.

    Any ideas?

    In my Gigabyte BIOS USB keyboard/mouse is disabled by default.
    You should definitely check yours.

    Enable USB Legacy Support in BIOS.

    it worked for me once when i tried to restore my OS via acronis
