Greetings. I have an msi z170a gaming motherboard that cant use usb mouse or keyboard during boot up of bios, windows recovery or windows cd... I need some help because now i get the windows start screen where it says start windows recovery or start normaly.... I really need some help. This started because i needed to use the windows control panel to boot up with yesterdays settings due to too much messing around with an android emulator called andy. I disabled the norton program, tried to install it, got trough the installation, but when i actovated norton again. The norton program would not activate Sonar protection, after battling with virus scans.i managed go get everything else but the sonar working so i activated the reboot with yesterdays settings alternative... And forgot that i had this issue with usb keyboards and mouse not working on the computer before the logging in part of the os. The tower has only 2 usb 2.0 ports but those wont work either...

I appreciate every inch of help i may get.

Whatever others suggest may i suggest cloning your drive weekly when the computer is working correctly,then a easy drive swap when things go awry.

Does it have a PS2 port? if so you need to borrow or buy a PS2 keybaord and boot into BIOS and set USB legacy foe DOs to Enabled for the USB ports to work before the windows USb drivers load.
