Enter into bios settings when rebooting. Turn off legacy usb support. You may also need to pass noapic and nolapic as boot options.

Keyboard unrecognized on install

If your getting this problem when installing slackware (or maybe any other distro) try typing on the keyboard while the Install CD is booting, make sure that your keys are echoing to screen it seems to not recognize it if no signals are being sent (errr.... something like that, i just know it worked for me)
