No Keyboard Mouse On Install Screen


Sorry to start a new topic on this but I have done a search for every topic on keyboard and mouse in this forum and have still not found a solution: I can get all the way to the installation screen where the welcome scrolls in different languages but keyboard and mouse still not working. Both mouse and keyboard are usb. Should be noted that when switching off USB legacy in BIOS that keyboard and mouse dont work in boot screen.


I have tried every flag that people have suggested on here including:







USBLegacyOff=Yes | No (Tried both ways)


Any additional suggestions are helpful.

So my mb only has one PS/2 port and was successful in getting the PS/2 Keyboard to work in the welcome screen. I was able to get to the next screen (Install OSX) but am unable to proceed past that point now. I am able to use the tab key to go back and forth between continue and the go back arrow but cannot get to the utilities menu because mouse wont work still. I tried Shift+Command (windows logo)+U for utilities menu but no response. When I try to hit continue it just sits and does nothing. I assume from past installs on other machines that this means it doesnt see a suitable drive to install to.


On a side note, I since I do only have one PS/2 port I tried to boot with the PS/2 mouse only but it didn't work at all in the first welcome screen.


Thanks @deadmau5 for the suggestion. It is encouraging to be able to get past at least one block in the road!

Here's an update: I am now successfully installing Mavericks as I type.


Here's what I ended up doing (I don't pretend to know what I'm doing here, but my keyboard/mouse worked for install by following this method)


Downloaded the DSDT.aml file specific to my Gigabyte motherboard from and changing the name to the generic DSDT.aml file name. I had to unhide all the files on the Niresh USB (unfortunately I had to use my Mac to do this - dont know how else to do it since its formatted for Mac.) by following the instructions found here: I then inserted the file in the Extras folder on the usb drive.

Then at boot I used the flags -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
