I checked the bios....no where does it address USB Legacy Support....only
options are to turn on or off support for the USB controller.
My system is a Dell E310 (a few years old). Motherboard is an Intel....not
sure of the model.
I am currently running Linux (CentOS) with no problems. I have ran many
other Linux distros with no problems.
I am going to attempt to try to boot up and plug in keyboard after
see ya on the other side.
