i have a Sony VAIO VGC LA3[1] that just have USB wireless keyboard.
On the BIOS i can't modify if the legacy mode it's enabled or not
but i think it is enabled.

In the loader everything works fine and i can type without problems
but once i get to sysinstall the keyboard acts like if it had the ctrl
key pressed all the time. So eg if i try to write an f the cursor position
moves forward, if i press a it goes to the start of he line, etc.

I googled and found that people was suggesting putting in the loader prompt
the following values:


but they didn't make any difference.

I also tried using DragonFlyBSD and the keyboard works fine there.

What else can i try?

Thanks in advance.
