No keyboard and mouse on boot up by install CentOS 7

Post by DennisEhv » 2015/01/25 13:41:37

Hello everybody

I'm Dennis from the Netherlands. I've been using Linux Mint for about an year. But always interesting in other Linux Distro.
So i wanted to try CentOS cause it seems to be a very nice os. BUT when i put in the usb and boot it, so i could try/install CentOS it does not recognize my mouse and keyboard at all. So it is for me not possible to select the correct language.

I have a pc thats just a few months old. And have a wireless Keyboard and mouse from Logitech

Make sure they are plugged into a USB2 socket and not a USB3 one.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Got a real one you can try to see if it's the problem? Also, check if you have BIOS USB Legacy mode on.
