Did you connect anything else but a keyboard or mouse on the server? Does it detect them? I think your USB is disabled for some reason in the bios.

after installation it will login at that time both keyboard and mouse are detecting. then drivers will install automatically. after that it will reboot automatically. after that its detecting till booting, once we got ctrl+alt+del, both are not working.

its a brand new server. IBM System x3400 M2.  in bois its not disabled.

i faced this type of issue in 4 sites, all are the same servers and same o/s.

Have you contacted IBM? With new servers you could have a potential issue which should be reported

You must have something like USB keyboard and mouse in your BIOS setup.
