Yesterday, I build my first "homemade" Computer. ("Factory new" parts)
Today I want to install windows 7 on it, but it doesnt recognize neither Mouse nor Keyboard in the Setup.
Although they work in the BIOS Menu.
What I did to try to fix the Problem
-Ask Google for help
-Turning the Computer off and on again
-Mouse and Keyboard are connected via the USB 2.0 Ports, as I know that Win7 doesnt actually support USB 3.0
--->I can tell they are the USB 2.0 Ports as it says so in the Mainboard Manuall
-I switched the Ports for Mouse and Keyboard with the System both running and not
-Turned the Computer off completly by removing the power cord and pressing the Power button multiple times
-Mouse and Keyboard work for sure, as they do on my Laptop and my former Computer
-"Played" with BIOS. Changed the Disabled/Enabled Status in Peripherals (xHci / eHci / Port Emulation / USB Legacy)
--->Some "Configurations" let me see the Mouse Icon in Win7 Setup, others dont.
What I did NOT to try to fix the Problem
-Installing Windows 7 via USB Stick as Image with USB 3.0 Drivers
----> I don't have an USB Stick and just wanted to try everything possible before buying one
-Using A Ps2 Mouse and Keyboard
---->Don't have any
-Trying to install Windows 7 without the RAM Sticks on my Mainboard
----> I doubt that this will change anything at all
What I would like to know
-Is there a Configuration for the BIOS of my Mainboard to use the Keyboard and Mouse via USB2.0 in the Setup?
-Is there no other option than buying an USB Stick? Do I even need a certain one?
-Can I add the USB Drivers to the actuall Win 7 DVD?
-Would another OS be a better option for that System?
