no keyboard no mouse on language screen

Recommended Posts



This is my first post here on this forum, i hope somewone could help me.


I m trying to install 10.6 with myhack on my computer.

I m following the steps in order to configure the BIOS (ahci and hpet setup correctly + i ve the usb legacy support enabled).

i boot from the myhack usb drive, and once i got on the language screen, i have no mouse and no keyboard (both pluged on usb ports).

i ve tried all the usb ports, and it doesn't fix the problem.

the strange thing is that the usb flashdrive is recognized, but not the mouse and keyboards.

i have tried two others keyboards, and 3 different mouses...it doesnt fix the problem either.


here is my config :


gigabyte H55m-usb3 (rev 1.0) - socket 1156 - BIOS at f2 version (a bit old i guess...)

core intel i5 750 2.66ghz

graphic powercolour radeon HD5550 1Go

1x4 Go DDR3 RAM ) kingston 1333

500 Go Seagate Barracuda hard drive


where could i find a IOUSBRollback kext to paste it on my usb flashdrive in S/L/E ?

i d like to try various solutions before flashing the BIOS to last revision supported by my motherboard (F11).


thanks a lot for your help ! and thanks for this website and its community
