    Yes. That's normal. No PC will start if there is not a keyboard detected.

    It doesn't go beyond that point. My PC just restarts
    That what stuck in BIOS means, not going anywhere beyond, so it's stuck there.
    Look at the third line from bottom, together with second line from the bottom it looks like that KB either draws too much power or there is a short.
    No, it's not true that no computer would start without KB present unless it's set in BIOS "Stop on any or KB error".
