i8042prt Event ID 7026 The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

I am having a problem with a service in Microsoft Windows 2003.  The service is i8042prt.
Event ID 7026
The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

I get this on a HP Proliant ML150 G2 server.  
My research on old threads from this site took me to this link
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_20907808.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+i8042prt
The solution for that question didn't work for me.  I do know its related to having a USB keyboard and mouse hooked up to the server.  The server comes with a PS2 keyboard and mouse but I use a KVM to switch between another server that is all USB.  
I emailed HP and they sent me this link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=PSD_DG030507_CW01&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
but it has no solution for making sure the error is not logged.  
I just want to make the service not run at all so it doesn't show up in the log.

Well it appears that I have found my solution on how to solve the issue.  
You can boot into recovery console and type disable i8042prt or you can navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt edit the "Start" Value to 4.
This will change onboot_service to disabled.

Thanks GeekSquad!

Awsome thread .... works on HP DC7600 and HP DC5700 workstations also. Has something to do with the PS2 ports. Regardless ... it clears the error. :) Good Post!!
