Keyboard stops working during Kali USB install?


I'm trying to install Kali Linux as a dual boot with Windows 10 on my laptop. Last week I installed raw Debian 8, also in a dual boot, and soon realized Kali would be a better option. I deleted the partitions and now have the same unallocated space left for the new install. I loaded the ISO on a bootable USB, launched it during startup, and when I get to the select language page from the Kali Linux install, the keyboard stops working. I can use the arrow keys to select "graphical install," but it stops working after that. This will prevent me from installing fully.

you ARE aware that the wireless network is DISABLED by default in Kali

you have to point a program to the network when you launch it


what country code did you use for the keyboard

dose it even work from the live dvd ?
( or dose "secure book" prevent you )
kali is after all a LIVE os ( than can also be installed)


and have you worked through the trouble shooting

I have looked through the troubleshooting as well as searched extensively online, and nothing. I set the country code to US, but the keyboard doesn't work at that point. The mouse does. And the keyboard functioned properly last week when installing Debian.
