Woot!! Figured it out!
So I had a bluetooth USB dongle and USB mouse atttached to my USB keyboard. WHen I boot with just the keyboard...HT enabled!
When I boot with keyboard + Mouse...HT Enabled!
When I boot with all 3...NO HT
So i'll have to try the BT dongle attached directly to a USB port...
HT also works when I hook the BT dongle to a different USB port. It only doesn't work when I have it hooked to my keyboard!
Wow I am glad that worked for you on my system I have none of those this except for the mouse and keyboard still cant boot with HT enabled..
