I'm working on my sister's Dimension E510 (O/S is XP MC). Right off the bat I had to go buy a new KB and mouse as this system does not have any PS2 connectors. So, I bought a new MS Wheelmouse Optical, and a Microsoft Digital Media Pro Keyboard. (My sister lives elsewhere so I didn't have access to hers, and my wireless connected set did not work in Safe mode.)
I've completed "fixing" the system and want to make a ghost image but am having trouble. Ghost give me a warning about the KB and Mouse - they may not be available and I should load drivers. My Jump drive, also USB, is available. The only difference I can see is that the warnings list my Jump drive as USB 2.0 and the others as 1.1.
I decided to ignore the warnings and true to the warning I don't have a KB or mouse once Ghost boots its partition. Since the Image spans several CDs, I need to be able to use a KB to tell it that I've loaded the next CD for it to write to.
I went to properties of the KB and Mouse and found their drivers. Both have a class.sys and a hid.sys. I loaded all 4 files for Ghost to have available.
I also loaded a USB driver from windows: hidusb.sys.
The BIOS does not have any settings for KB and Mouse to enable USB so I'm not missing anything there.
I'm thinking now that I neeed to load something for USB 1.1 since these devices seem to be presenting that. They are listed with 1.1 and don't work. The Jump drive is listed as USB 2.0 and does work.
Can anyone help me with getting these new devices to work?
