  1. I am trying to set the boot menu to boot from CD so I can resetup the OS and HD partition but the USB keyboard will not move the highlighted selection. I have tried two different keyboards.

    What keyboard are you using, and is it a USB or analog?

    Thank you for your response hellokitty[hk]

    I have resolved my problem. I was initially using a wireless setup that communicated via a USB receiver and then switched to a wired USB keyboard and PS2 port mouse. The problem turned out to be in the BIOS. I activated legacy USB support for the keyboard and then I was able to use the arrow keys to make my pre OS boot selection.
