Help: My Keyboard not working

Postby jelreinew » 2019-09-28 12:14


I'm trying to install debian Wheezie on a new laptop and my keyboard don't work anymore past the main screen of the installer (when I select which install I wanna do, graphical, normal or expert)

It's a usb keyboard and it don't need drivers (it works in bios), have you any idea what's wrong and how could I use it please?

My mouse is usb too and works so I tried to do a graphical install but the problem is that I need to type something while creating an account or a password for root so I really need the keyboard to work...

Please help me.
Thanks in advance.

Is legacy USB enabled in the BIOS?

I suggest you download a Debian Buster installer before trying anything. Wheezy is not supported since May 2018.
Also, if this is a brand new laptop, Wheezy may not support the hardware.
