Your computer's BIOS might help you here.
Look in the BIOS settings for "legacy USB support" or anything that resembles this, and enable it. Then reboot the PC and start your Linux installation again.

It will make the USB keyboard and mouse available to any OS even before it loads a USB driver (just like a good old ps/2 keyboard).
