I have been working on this problem for a year now. It is becoming critical because I need to upgrade Linux. I really want Ubuntu.
Keyboard works fine at power on. I can edit BIOS options. I put in the CD or DVD, it starts fine. Keyboard works for selecting boot options. Once the installation begins however, no more keyboard...
This is true across every version and distribution of Linux I have come across- I have dozens of liveCDs -EXCEPT Linux Mint 8.
Laptop = Acer 5517
Running Linux Mint 8 & Windows 7
I have no USB Legacy Emulation BIOS option
