Just hope someone can answer something for me.
I now have to use my laptop with a USB keyboard plugged in because a previous liquid spillage has rendered the pc's built-in keyboard unusable.
I am now looking to sell this pc at a discounted price because of this issue (I already have a buyer in mind) and am planning to wipe my drive by using DBAN, or a similar program, before passing on to any buyer.
After wiping the drive and before selling on, I will be hoping to do a clean install of Win10.
What I am concerned about is this...... Will I be able to reinstall Windows10 from recovery disc using my auxiliary USB keyboard? Presumably I will be prompted to punch in the Windows 10 product key at some point during the install and because the laptop's own keyboard is bust, I will have to use a USB keyboard to do this. Will I be able to do this with a USB keyboard, or will the USB keyboard not be recognized after wiping the drive?
I would be grateful for some input by someone more knowledgeable that myself before I go ahead with the wipe.
