When booting from installation CD, I get to the Beastie menu and can select boot options.
Kernel continues to boot until I get to country selection menu where my keyboard hangs ccompletely, no lights, nothing.
I have tried the following:
At the beastie menu I push 6 to enter extra commands and have entered:
boot - s
as well as
neither of these options has helped.
When the kernel is booting it detects my keyboard as an Eleen USB Keyboard on ukbd0.
I will try to find a way to output all the info it show while booting.
Sofar I have googled a couple of different search terms but nothing exactly matching this problem.
have also tried both #BSD and ##FreeBSD on irc.freenode.net and no luck either.
How-To-Repeat: According to most people I have spoken to they have never come a cross such a problem. I did not have this problem on either gentoo or ubuntu (hoary as well as hardy) on the same system.
The keyboard functions perfectly while navigating through the bios as well as the beastie menu.
As far as I have found most people who have this problem have it with laptops. I am using a Desktop pc with a gigabyt GA6VM7a mobo. The kb is a generic asus usb keyboard.
I have tried both freebsd 5 (couple months ago) as well as 7.0 (yesterday) both have the same problem.
can you try changing the usb port you use to connect the usb-keyboard to?
try to use the very first usb port.

I asked for feedback
Move to the USB team
Hi. Thanks for the prompt response. I have tried both USB ports. Problem
still occures with both of them. I have noticed that htey keyboard
lights flash as the keyboard is detected and then i think that is when
could you try with:
<----' didii FreeBSD
I will try that tonight when I get home from work and submit a follow-up
with my findings. Thanks.

After having this problem on a Dell Optiplex 210L with FreeBSD 6.4, I just discovered a - strange - workaround.
When a new kernel is compiled without the fdc device (floppy), it appears that the ukbd1 device is correctly detected.
This is the first time I succeed to get a running keyboard with FreeBSD 6.4 on that platform (no PS/2 keyboard connector)
It might be the same issue
Hope this might help to fix the problem
I'm facing the exact same problem with 7.1 installation CD. USB Keyboard
stop working as soon as the kernel loads. The mainboard is a Gigabyte
GA-EP35C-DS3R. The problem is known to happen frequently on Gigabyte
motherboards. I've tried myriad Linux distribution and none had this
kind of problem.
I've no other fix than unplug/plug the keyboard to make it working again.
