    I did use the rear ports...the keyboard and mouse were working fine before I made the safe mode with networking change.
    I'll run upstairs and shut down the computer and retry...will report back shortly

    same issue with the wireless...no keyboard or mouse controls.
    I did notice that the mouse was working on screen while the install disk was still loading. (I had a screen displaying a solid color with the mouse being movable, but the setup screen had yet to display)

    when I went upstairs to check on the install disk load progress, the wired mouse was working. The setup screen had not finished loading yet, but the mouse was working.

    I shut the system down, installed the wireless keyboard and mouse and booted up...loads but no mouse or keyboard.

    Ok on the move to here since off topic from tutorial

    I will have to restart the desktop and boot from the install disk again...it will take quite some time...more than I have for this session. But, if that is the route you recommend, I will get it started.

    If I recall, once setup loads, it gives you the option to install or repair(in the bottom left corner). I did create a restore point successfully before I started the safemode addition effort.

    appreciate that Brink...it may be after 7 or 8 pm EST before I get back to this issue. Once setup loads and I have the option to "repair", should I go ahead and see if I can get to my restore point or do you have another method in mind by going to "install" and letting that go?

    would you recommend I update the BIOS from the A03 2012 to something newer after this issue is resolved or just leave well enough alone? system looked like it was functioning fine prior to attempting the safe mode with networking effort.

    The restore point would be easier.

    ok...this desktop system is my bain right now. It had been down for over a month starting with a 2000-0146 error and win 7. I finally got around to working on it after the new drive arrived. Just got it back on line yesterday and last night was in the process of moving my saved files over to the new drive. Figured I would hold off on that process and get safe mode on board in case something happened...just didn't figure on this issue! lol...

    gotta run for now...type at cha later...hopefully with good news on restore point put to good use and successful.
