    USB devices not recognised during installation


    Hi,

    I have a Logitech USB wireless keyboard and mouse combo. When I start the installation for Mandrake 9.1 they are both recognised up to the point where I have to press F1 or Enter to start set up.

    If I choose expert mode, I can get to the section where I have to type expert, howeber after this they are not recognised meaning I can't carry on installing. Has anyone had these problems or can anyone suggest how to solve this?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Ian

    Thanks for the reply, but I have tried the text install (by typing text) but this didn't work either. It stops recognising the devices after this imput screen.

    However strange it sounds, maybe Mandrake compiled their installation kernel without USB support. You could try another distro.

    swap em

    I've had problems using usb stuff during setup. There are often bios settings for usb including something about legacy OS's.

    i would swap them during install for something simple and then plug em in and configure them later
