I am trying to load Xandros Linux 3.02 OCE from a CD. I get as far as entering an Administrator password but the keyboard does not enter any letters. I presume it's something to do with a BIOS setting, could someone please tell me what I'm missing?
If it's a USB or wireless keyboard it might need additional drivers. I had a problem with Ubuntu Linux where the mouse wouldn't move because it needed extra drivers. If you can get hold of an old PS/2 keyboard to use for now, use that until you can get the drivers for your current keyboard.
I don't know about Xandros, but it is a security feature of ubuntu linux that the cursor remains static whenever a password is typed in. It's probably the same in Xandros and the password is being entered although nothing appears to be happening.
Snap ...a version of Gentoo which I was playing with.. I too couldnt get it to enter the PW user data before yes , so that throws out the Kb driver as it loads that before hand.the install went without a hitch. But on reboot it just doesnt type the Pw .even though you can enter text into the user field above it.Im just guessin,the code behind the second field (password input)is missing so it cant continue ..But then Im new to linux based things..Im trying it to see if it can offer a alternative 64bit O/S.
