I have been reading info about the loader, it says it cat load modules,
I don't know if the deamon of the keyboard is a module, and if thera can
be a modification of the scripts of the loader.

I have the same problem as Mark. I've tried enabling USB at the
level and that allows me to use the keyboard to navigate the
screens, but as soon as the BootMGR loads, the USB gets switched
I manage several servers in a cross platform environment and USB
only 'common' denominator for keyboards. Right now I keep a
keyboard around just for that period when the BootMGR is running
those rare instances when I need to stop the boot, change the
boot into single user, etc... It seems like others must have
against this problem and solved it in a more elegant fashion
How about it? Is there a software only workaround?
Thanks and regards,
