It didn't work. Actually I have a little more than a USB mouse, I have a
wireless mouse and wireless keyboard which are both controlled by a central
unit which plugs into an USB port in the computer. The keyboard works well,
with the option of booting with an USB keyboard, but I cannot make the mouse
work. Any suggestions?
