URGENT


Hey. :)

I have xp with genuine disk

I have the problem listed before where the system logs in and straight back out again. I've read how to fix the problem but it requires to boot with my xp disk. I have a USB Keyboard and it works in Bios setup etc but not the boot menu.

Is this because its a usb keyboard? Or is something not right. F12 on my system starts boot menu not F8, F8 does nothing.

Anyone help me out please?

My PC is the only thing that has problems, G5 never has anything go wrong!!! but thats a different story......

yes, go into the bios and there should be an option to enable both USB mouse and keyboard support. Try that it should work

normally I believe it is in advanced settings? What kind of mainboard are you using? most of the builds I have done lately are Asus or Gigabyte. I have had a couple in the past I had to set up using a standard ps1 keyboard, but it has been a while.
