When you have "USB Legacy support" enabled in the BIOS you should
still have a working keyboard up till the loader stage.
With that you should be able to select option 7 'Boot FreeBSD with USB
keyboard' of the boot menu as mentioned.
You should also be able to go to loader options and do a "load kbdmux"
and boot afterwards. Note this option only works on 6.1 BETA and there
are ISOs to download :)
