You will probably need a "regular" keyboard to do this.
Start the computer & go into the BIOS setup.
Locate the USB & see if it is enabled .
See if it is enabled for "legacy" support
See if it has a listing for USB Keyboard & mouse , if so make sure they are enabled.
Since it is a new build you should have a manual for it.
Look in the maqnual for the BIOS settings.
If you don't have a manual go to the MSI site & download it.
One other thought,
Does your USB mouse & keyboard have to be "synchronized" ?
Mine has a little button on the receiver,KB, & mouse
I had to hold the button down on all 3 at the same time for several seconds to get them to work .
