HP ILO2 - No keyboard in POST or BIOS

We have a HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure. With BL460C servers. Im about to reinstall one of the servers and i cant get it to boot any CD. When running a console via ILO against the server my keyboard isnt working in POST or BIOS. It only starts working when i get to the login in to windows so i cant press F9 or anything to enter setup during boot. If i choose "one time boot from ..RBSU" i get in there but since the keyboard isnt working i cant do anything. I have upgraded the ILO firmware, BIOS and the Onboard Administrator with no luck. Tried all the different consoles still not working. Tried Internet Explorer 6 (some people say IE8 blocks keystrokes) Even bought a HP I/O cable to connect a monitor and keyboard directly to the blade) Tried different settings on the ILO-settings like "Persistent Keyboard and Mouse" - disabled. Nothing seems to work.

And did that work since it's not through the iLO?

Add the address of the iLo to intranet sites in IE on the computer that you are connecting from
