[Question] | F8 Prob In XP EULA

7 posts in this topic

has anyone else found this prob? iv tryed everythign its even happened in a new rig from a 32bit to a 64 bit has same prob, and all parts are new, basicly i load xp for a fresh install on my sata drive, wd 250 gb, its running off a nv raid using both drivers, the cd is a SP2 intagrated bootable cd, it'll load the windows setup,. it'll load the raid drivers, but when it comes to hitting F8 to agree to the EULA screen it wont accept F8 even with a new Keyboard, the only way i was able to make it work was to use Nlite to create a unattened cd, but that isnt so good becasue i cant use xp rescue , it always comes up with a netmap.inf prob. hopefully someone has seen thsi before, and can fix the F8 issue,

Maybe this is a driver problem. Do you use a USB keyboard?

it is a driver problem and it can happen on ps/2 or usb... that is if the keyboard is one of the fancy multimedia ones with a heap of other buttons on it and/or has alternate uses for the function keys...

put a plain old keyboard on to do your install and then put your good one back on next time you reboot.
