i have the same problem on my Fujitsu notebook

The keyboard doesnt work since I start installation (after I press -v on darwinX86's boot option and the system booting, then my keyboard does not work anymore) but the installation is still working and I can complete the operation (with no keyboard available)
Then after the installation completed, system has reboot to OS X and then the monitor display "Before You Begin... There is no keyboard connected to your computer. Please connect your keyboard."

I have tried to search for solution but I am unlucky, there is just the solution with the install new kext file and type some code in Terminal but how can I do that if I can not typing the code?

If anybody has any ideas please please help us... Mac OS X is just a step to my hand but I can not reach it....

it is very simple to fix, just select APIC driver while installing.

I had the same problem on my xps M1330 with iATKOS 5i. The problem was in ACPI. Once I had put basic PS/2 driver instead the installation went fine.

Another thing that might work is to temporarily plug in a USB keyboard.

After installing you should be able to get the laptop keyboard to work again using the various solutions already posted here and elsewhere.

If a USB keyboard doesn't work, there are problems with USB that you should fix first, either by BIOS settings or choosing an USB fix in the Customize settings before installing.

I tried to insall iDeneb v1.6 on my Dell D620. When I reboot into the installation, I get "before you begin there is no keyboard connected" Error. I installed the PS2 drivers too.

Any idea what could be wrong or how to fix the problem?
Thanks
Hans

Ok, so I'm in the same boat as the other Fujitsu users, trackpad and keyboard are a no go.

Worse, I can't get online via wifi or lan.

I'm trying to learn on how to do all the kext stuff, but no idea where to start? where are these fixes and where do I install them?

If you are using iPC OSx86 10.5.6, when installing click "Fixes and Patches" and install the correct PS/2 Patch. Make sure you read the description for each of the patches and install the correct one for you.

This works because the keyboard in a laptop is connected to the motherboard via PS/2 and so is the trackpad/touchpad. They are each recognized as a PS/2 keyboard and a PS/2 mouse.
Therefore you would need a PS/2 driver to use them.

how did you install ps2 driver? because, you are not allowed to enter into Lion to install anything because of the keyboard not connected problem. Would you elaborate, how did you solve your problem?

You can solve this by simply plugging in a USB keyboard into any available USB port. I did this and then unplugged the USB keyboard because my PS2 keyboard was working fine.

I boot into the single user mode in terminal so that I can do some editing. I edited System/CoreService/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/Info.plist

removed these two lines

<string>DeviceSection</string>
<string>KeyboardTypeSection</string>

and after that, I didn't get that error. I didn't use usb keyboard. However, I did include VoodooPS2 driver in my Extra folder. anyway, that was long time ago :) but thanks for reply.
