KB/MOU requirements for build
Hello all,

I have the parts for my build on the way, and I have a question regarding input devices to use during the process.

MOBO: Asrock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3

I currently have a Microsoft wireless keyboard, with a little USB receiver, and no mouse.

Would I be able to use a wireless USB mouse and my key to build and set-up my system? Or, do I need to get PS/2 keyboard and wired USB mouse (or wired USB both) in order to get the system up and running?

I'm trying to cover all my "ohjeez, now I need this so have to run out in the middle of the build" bases.

Thanks for reading.

As far as navigating the bios settings I am not sure if you will need a wired keyboard but I know from personal experience my wireless mouse works when installing windows. Which would make sense since it is a Microsoft mouse Smile. I don't foresee a problem except for the fact that you do not have a mouse.

My plan is to pick up a mouse before getting down to business,but wanted to make sure I'd be okay if I purchased a wireless one. Thank you for the quick response. I'm probably going to grab an old PS/2 kbd from my dad also,just to make sure. Big Grin

Freekish I think he meant that he was not sure if they would be detected with the initial setup before the drivers were downloaded.

They should be detected, although it might take you a few tries before they do get detected.

Thanks all. For the record, my mouse was recognized from the get-go (as near asI can tell), but I had to go with a PS/2 keyboard. Not because it wasn't recognized, but because my house lacked for 2 AAA batteries. lol
