Description Marcus 2011-07-05 02:20:09 UTC

 Im familiar with Linux an Windows. Had installed FreeBSD in a Virtualbox without problems and wanted to install PC-BSD on my PC.

 I downloaded FreeBSD 9 Current 20110701 i386 CD. I use an Trust USB-Keyboard with URL http://trust.com/products/product.aspx?artnr=14842 (14967).
 The discs boot fine into graphical GUI on my pc. 
 When the install interface comes up, my keyboard doesnt work.
no keyboard. no Mouse/no trackball working

 I asked google,proof enable legacy-drivers for USB keyboards, which is in BIOS working ok.
My keyboard has no PS/2. 

 I will appreciate any answers and suggestions, if anyone could get me some light into this cloudy problem.
 My hardware is working fine otherwise, memtest ok. I have a ubuntu and a windows7/xp install, works fine.



starting windows7 and ubuntu 11.04 the keyboard is working normal also with integrated trackball, no idea what todo with pcbsd

searchengine results here:
(solution bios update has been checked)

it looks like i have the latest bios 1.7j:


another keyboard link in german:

is there a solution, any idea?
How-To-Repeat: on every restart bios is working ok with legacy usb setup, but then later after cd-boot there is no function
