UBCD 4.1.1 usb keyboard not working on dell GX620

#1 Post by ron7000 » Wed Jan 02, 2008 1:46 pm

I have exhausted every option in the bios,
I boot the cd and get the main menu but the keyboard will not work.
Is there a fix for this?

The computer is a dell optiplex GX620, with usb keyboard and mouse. There is no ps2 port so I have to use a usb keyboard.

However, I am able to use UBCD 4.1.1 on a dell precision 490 with usb keyboard.

Hi ron7000,

i have had the same problem.

download syslinux 3.62, you need only memdisk\memdisk and the files form syslinux\win32.
Copy memdisk from this version to ubcd\syslinux (perhaps it works too with the old version) and work with the great solution from syntaxer:

1) format your usb stick with fat (i'd prefer fat16)
2) Download syslinux and start syslinux\win32\syslinux.exe e: (where e: is the driveletter of your usb stick)
3) copy from ubcd the files from the \syslinux directory to the root of your usb stick (except: ldlinux.sys)
4) copy now the all the files and directories from ubcd to the root of your usb stick
