Hi,
I was tryin to show some of the distros from 2 of the coverdiscs to someone today, with an option to install later and replace vista

On both occasions the arrow keys would not move the cursor on the main distro selection window of the live discs, so after much hitting of buttons for 30 seconds I was forced to go into the one on the top of the list. This happened with 2 recent discs

Once the distro at the top of the list in question loaded up, the keyboard worked fine,again on both discs

Does anyone know how to move the cursor up and down to select a distro on one of these keyboards?

Thanks in advance

Is it a USB keyboard, is USB legacy mode enabled in the BIOS?

What Rakios said.

This is a USB keyboard (at least the ones at work are) and need USB Legacy mode enable in BIOS to work outside of an OS being loaded.
