USB Keyboard stuck during 7.0 install

I burned a fresh iso of the i386 7.0-RELEASE-disc1, I've got my  
keyboard and mouse plugged in via USB.  Upon successful boot of the  
install cd, the moment I press a key, it seems to stick, and that key  
code is repeated over and over again.

For example, the "Select Country" is the first menu to appear.  If I  
press the down arrow, and immediately release, it will move all the  
way down to the bottom of the list and get stuck there.  Meaning I  
can't do anything else.  No switching to a different VT.  If I hit  
enter on the first selection "United States" it will bring me to the  
main menu, but it will act like the Enter key is still depressed and  
will endlessly cycle through menus.

I've search the mailing-list archive, and good, and found similar  
problems with USB legacy settings in the BIOS.  My BIOS does not have  
this setting, so I'm not sure what to do from here.  Additionally, I  
have yet to find an instance of anyone having the same exact problem.

Any advice would be very appreciated.
Thank you.
