How is your keyboard's wireless receiver connected to the computer? If it's connected via USB then it probably won't work as the USB drivers aren't loaded until later in the boot process.

You need to connect the keyboard through PS2, using a USB to PS2 converter.


boot, keyboard, ps2, usb, wireless
