I'm having a problem installing Windows XP SP2 or running a repair on a Dell Optiplex GX280 that has no PS/2 ports.
I really need to finish a repair I've already started on a computer, but when it gets to an unsigned driver, the USB keyboard and mouse get disabled. It is a known problem, here is the microsoft article about it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827052/en-us
. I haven't tried getting the driver signed like it mentions, sounds like too big of a process.
Does anyone know if there is a way to get the repair to continue running even through this problem? I have tried a serial mouse and disabled the fast boot option in BIOS, but it didn't recognize the serial mouse. It was actually a PS/2 mouse with an adapter, but I figure that would work just the same.
I have another hard drive I could install XP on using the unattended setup and then move files, but if I could finish the repair it would make the process much easier, plus I'd just like to know how to get around it in case it comes up again in the future.
