Solaris 10 installation keyboard/mouse not working

During the installation of solaris 10, from DVD, my mouse and keyboard do not work.

I thought it was the wireless set, but wired versions do not wotk either.  They work normally just ont in the setup.  THey are Microsoft natural sets.

Has anybody encountered this and got any solutions?

Thanks

Once had a similar problem with a microsoft natural keyboard when (don't laugh) setting up windows 2003 server. It didnt work with a logitech eigther.. only my plain old noname worked.

The problem is that the microsoft keyboard, because of "to much intelligence" does not respond correctly (respectivly in a way that is not the official standart)

Only "sollution" is to not use it during installation. If it is connected through ps/2 you may want to try to start the setup without a keybod at all, and only connect it, when the system has already queried for it.

To avoid any drama, check your hardware against the Solaris Hardware Compatibility List :

also have a look at the following Soalris 10 docs/FAQ:

I suspect it is the modern keyboard so will just leave it at that until i can find a standard one.

My hardware is kind of on the hcl list - just i have updated versions that aren't there yet....
