Am I missing something here?
If your mobo doesn't have PS2 ports, you can use standard USB HIDs to boot.
If you have PS2 ports, just connect some PS2 KB & mouse to boot.
Then install the special drivers that came with your new mouse & KBD.

I am imaging a server that does not have HID / USB keyboard and mouse drivers etc. I am then using Acronis universal restore to restore the image to another system using HID / USB. Prior to imaging I have to disconnect current mouse and keyboard and connect USB devices. I rather just install support for the USB mouse and keyboard in advance to avoid disconnecting etc.

The new system use USB keyboard and mouse. The olds system did not and if I do not do this then when I restore I have no mouse or keyboard functionality. Unable to login etc.

What about installing the drivers on the old system and temporarily connect the HIDs before imaging?

That's what I am doing, but my question is how do I load the drivers for the device without connecting the devices.
