    They should work just fine if they are USB devices. Just make sure you have Legacy USB enabled in your BIOS and away you go! Your keyboard and mouse will work perfectly throughout the entire installation.

    My Logitech wireless keyboards that use the unifying receiver work just fine during the Windows install. I can access my BIOS too. Things have come a long way since the first wireless keyboards showed up.

    Same here, alphanumeric. The only wired mouse and keyboard I now own came with my new HP 500-056. I never even hooked either of them up; went straight to my Logitech Wave keyboard and mouse with the unifying receiver. I have a set for each desktop.
