Hi Guys,
I bought a Microsoft USB Keyboard and it just keeps asking for i386, from SP2 Windows XP disk. I have put the winxp SP2 disk in several times and it still will not find the file it is looking for. I have explored the disk also, and cvannot find the file. I do not really know where to look next.

Any ideas please.

From what I can see, it is something like this :


kbdhid
kbdhid.sys:kbdhid sy_

The Keyboard is called : Microsoft Curv Keyboard 2000.

ok...put your xp cd in the drive...and exit out of the auto run that open s up do start > search > files and folders....in the "all or part of the file name" box put kbdhid.* in the look in...change that to the cd drive, now click the more advanced options deal ...make sure the first 3 boxes are checked (search system folders, search hidden files and folders , search subfolders) now start the search..

I did that and no good. I think I might have to try putting it in other USB slots. Not sure if that will work, though. I have dropped a line off to Microsoft about it, but you know them, I shall be lucky to get a reply,lol.

Its a shame really, it is a brand new Keyboard.

I don't even think that file is on a windows xp cd....did you install the intellitype driver that came on a cd with the keyboard?

You can also download them here.

In the meantime, I found thiswhich looks like the answer. Microsoft drivers,(Intellitype Pro 5.5). The info on this file listed a list of KBs and mine was on the list. Tomorrow we shall see.

Thanks again.
