At the time of boot the enter and up and down key buttons of Microsoft wireless Entertainment keyboard 7000 do not work.

I recently purchased an expensive Microsoft Wireless Entertainment keyboard 7000[has a bluetooth transmitter] and as it was sealed at the time of purchase I could not examine it. I was soon disillusioned with its fragility and small size it was like a laptop keyboard and it did not even have the full buttons of a desktop keyboard. Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard 6000 and Microsoft Digital Media Pro Keyboard which I also have are attached to other computers and I find them much better to my taste and handling and they cost much less too.
Anyway on this computer I have a dual boot system between Windows Seven and Vista. The default is Windows Seven. However the enter button on this keyboard does not work at boot time and I cannot enter into Windows Seven but have to wait the full 26 or more seconds or so. Moreover the up and down buttons do not also work at boot time so I cannot select Windows vista the other operating system. It is a shame to see such an expensive Keyboard behave like this. Am I missing something can the aforesaid buttons work at boot time?
