Hi,
Plug the USB keyboard into another port (preferably one at the back) restart the PC and enter the BIOS again, this time go through the BIOS and set all the USB controllers to enabled, hit F10 save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and you should now be able to use the USB keyboard to install the OS.
Please post back if you need anymore advice.


Good luck

    Go back into the BIOS and reset it to default settings, then try again.

I bought a used ibm r40, changed the hard dsrive and tryed to load xp pro. after loading the system files the computer wants to reboot to finalise. After this it goes right back to fresh install start.


When you say you tried to load XP Pro, did the hard drive already have XP installed or are you installing it fresh from a CD? If you are installing it fresh from the CD and it is asking you to reboot, it seems as if you are letting it try to boot again from the CD. When it reboots and says "Press any key to boot from CD..." don't press anything, just let it boot. It should finalize the installation there!

Hope that helps!

If you insert your windows or recovery disc in the PC and boot from it you should be able to access the windows re installation before the malware can initiate. The PC will ask you to press any key if you want to boot from the CD. Once there you can delete all the information on the hard drive and do a fresh install. This will restore the computer to factory settings but will remove any viruses or malware.

My windows Xp on mac wont run


Hi there,

Try getting the latest version of bootcamp again, and making sure you create the driver cd it asks you to create during the install.

This part is critical as it installs the software needed for your keyboard and mouse to be recognised by windows xp.

Hope this help.

PC will not boot from CD drive


Download the six winxp install floppies,,from bootdisk.com and install that way.
Your PC was not meant for XP it was meant for Millenium at most.
But if you load through floppies and then use the cd you should be OK

Logitech Wave Keyboard + windows XP


Im certain those features on that keyboard are designed for Windows Vista , but if you have any software that was with the keyboard install it , now these features should work.

If you can't find your CD/'s here is a link to the logitech website with the applications

>> Logitech Wave Keyboard Software <<

If you find this doesnt help , im certain that it was designed for vista not to work with XP.
