I needed to be able to have 2 keyboards active on my machine. One is an RF keyboard so that the Pastor can control his PPT slides during the sermon, the other to be the main keyboard to control the system otherwise.

I wondered if a USB keyboard would allow two to co-exist and ordered a cheap one off of Ebay. Answer is, yes. Wonderful, I thought, my problem is solved.

Well, maybe, maybe not. The RF keyboard is the standard plug in type. And, I discover, the USB keyboard is not recognized in the BIOS Setup program.

Now, hopefully I won't have to be fooling with the BIOS Setup during a service but I wonder if there are other vulnerabilities. Anybody out there living with a USB keyboard only and have experiences to share?
