I am trying to install windows 7 home premium on a new HDD. The problem is in the first setup screen requiring input, no mouse pointer, can't access choices with keyboard either.
So far I have tried:
Checked bios to see if the usb is enabled. It is.
Installed PS2 keyboard and mouse, same thing - nothing.
Checked all hardware for windows 7 compatibility - no issues.
Ran memory test utiity - no issues

Hardware:
P4 2.8GHz 2800MHz Processor
Asus P5V800-MX Motherboard
1Gb Ram
WD 1Tb HDDCaviar Blue (WD10EALS) SATA 2, 7200 RPM
LG SATA DVD Writer (GH22NS50)
BFG (NVDIA) R6600 Video Card

I'm Leaning towards trying a BIOS update.

Any thoughts?

I know when I installed Win7 recently, I thought I had the same problem. I had a usb mouse and keyboard and neither would move at first, I got the old ps2's out and about to shut down and reboot with ps2 attached, when whala... the usb's started working. You might just need to be patient and give it about 5 minutes or so for it to recognize everything.

Yeah, this is a weird one.
All of the keyboards I tried work fine until the setup screen. Then nothing works.
The windows disk I purchased is a ligit, full version. It is an OEM copy, but that shouldn't make a difference.

I did leave it at the setup screen for over 1/2 hour. Nothing.
Reboot over and over again with no luck.

I got a bios update (0901) and the AFUDOS utility from ASUS today. I'll give that a try and let you know what happens.
