that has nothing to do with usb... hard drives that go INSIDE the computer are either IDE (technically EIDE but that's another lesson) or SATA or if you're really fancy SCSI.... i have yet to see a motherboard that doesn't have a PS/2 port on it...(not saying they don't exist...just saying i've never seen it)
so here comes the question
what are you wanting to do? why are you wanting to do it? and what have you already tried? what do you mean your hard drive crashed?
what do you mean there?
and of course when you boot it has no keyboard or mouse support
are you wanting to REPLACE the hard drive or add a new one as a slave?

These boards are MSI / Jabil made boards for Gateway, so you will see a Gateway logo come up when booted. This board is intended to be used in Gateway Essential Pc's Flex ATX & Flex ATX Pro. Please note, while these boards have 3 USB ports built on, only two ports are enabled and are functional, the third port was disabled (reasons unknown). Since the motherboard has only USB PORTS, keyboard, mouse, printer or any other peripherals must be USB.

leave it to gateway to do something as stupid as not putting a single ps/2 port on a motherboard...what if your usb dies? retarted....simply retarted....
it's possible that the usb ports are baked...
