Try changing the BIOS options regarding failing on all
errors.  After changing my Tyan Thunder K7 to not fail
on keyboard failures, it was able to boot fine.

Also, if you intend to use a USB keyboard permanently,
you may wish to comment out atkbdc from your kernel
configuration file.  This will make it easier to set
up kbdcontrol with the USB keyboard.

Let me know if you have further questions.
