If the device needs drivers it will not work before the drivers are loaded. So you cannot use them in the BIOS or in Grub.

That is independent of the Operating System you use.

I have a Logitech bluetooth keyboard+mouse that does not need drivers and I can use in the BIOS. But it is known some Logitech devices do not need drivers.

i cant find any drivers for ubuntu 9.04 (well i cant find any drivers at all)
all the guides i found don't work because the config files they mention are empty or dont have the same info

when rebooting from windows they work in the bios but after a ubuntu reboot or it going into screen saver they don't work and i need to pair it again

plz help :confused: :confused:

Hey man...you asked for help, not me so don't be rude on the Ubuntu Forums....as to your issue...bluetooth is a son-of a-bitch to work with...if you're using a laptop especially. Wired keyboard and mouse is usually better..mostly because of the OS being Linux based in this case Ubuntu...Logitech is quite good for drivers and such....
