I've also got an aluminum Apple keyboard that I purchased a few weeks ago. I tinkered with the turning the "Legacy USB" support off (which works for getting OSX to actually boot up and not just immediately hang) but I also experienced the problem of not being able to choose an option with the Darwin boot loader. I just found a possible solution that could help you guys as well. I set my bios "Plug and Play OS?" option to NO instead of YES. The only thing I noticed was that I had to unplug the keyboard after getting to the login screen and plug it back in on my first bootup. Since then, every subsequent boot has been problem free. Hopefully this works for someone else because this is seriously awesome keyboard. I'm using the Asus m3a79-t deluxe motherboard in case anyone was wondering.

I have the same problem and not just that aluminum keyboard doesn't works on BIOS, also logitech illuminated keyboard doesn't works on boot up, so is an issue which some motherboards have fixed it with a BIOS update, unfortunatelly my motherboard doesn't has a fix for this issue.

My KBD has a delete!!


If your's don't, like the Macbook Unibody just use the "fn" + "<-"(backspace) buttons!




"fn" + "<-"(backspace) gives you Delete

"fn" + "Delete" gives you Backspace



Don't make the mistake I did of buying the smaller wired keyboard without the numeric pad. This also lacks a Delete button, which is indispensable for getting into the bios. Otherwise, it all works fine in Chameleon.
