    In theory if there is a single bluetooth keyboard that works then all should, as they use a standard protocol. I did a quick search but I found more about people with problems than people with solutions unfortunately...Does it have to be bluetooth? Bluetooth keyboards will not be recognised by the BIOS on boot. However there are many PS/2 and USB wireless keyboards out there that are very affordable. I use a Labtec one I got in Tesco for €13 along with an optical wireless mouse. Both work out of the box.

    It does have to be bluetooth for security reasons.
