What is the Workaround??

My system has 3 hard drives, 2 are clones of 'C'. Using a Ps2 mouse and keyboard I had the option of booting into any drive using the F11 key. Since moving over to wireless mouse and keyboard I can no longer use the F11 option as the wireless mouse and keyboard are not activated until the boot up is complete. At present if I want to update my other drives I have to use a Ps2 keyboard. Any other workarounds ?

Look for the software for the keyboard as you may be able to program the F11 key for dual booting.

I don't use a wireless keyboard so I'm just guessing here. The wireless device for your keyboard probably plugs into a USB port so you may need to look in your BIOS settings for "USB legacy support" or something similar. I would think you will need to have this enabled.

The problem with the wireless keyboard is that power is not being applied to the keyboard until the boot process is nearly complete which of course means that I cant even access the bios. (F2). Looks to me that wireless is OK for some things but not everything. I'll have to stick with my two keyboards. I'll post as resolved Thanks.
