    No usb during new format


    I recently encountered an issue where when I did a new format (Windows 8) of a friends pc and I was dumbfounded that there was no mouse cursor I could use! How can I remedy that situation? The desktop uses a usb-to-PS2 converter or connector for mouse and that is the issue. I switched the mouse and the keyboard and the keyboard wasn't detected. In those cases what can one do? That's a driver issue correct? Now how can I apply the correct drivers to it during the format of Windows 8?

    That's in Windows(images). Sorry to confuse you there. Well it's working fine in Windows 7. The PS2 connector and all including the keyboard and mouse(even if you use a PS2 / keyboard). The thing is that when I boot the Rufus made USB with Windows 8 and I got to the selecting the language etc, there is no mouse there. The same thing when I use a usb mouse and then use the PS2 keyboard --- boom! No keyboard there. This seems to be a driver issue with the PS2.

    Any ideas how can I remedy that..?

    This seems to be a driver issue with the PS2.
    Try updating the driver.
