    I just installed the bootcamp 1.1 on my macbook. I burned the driver CD and installed it in my previously functioning windows XP pro with SP2, after the install it asked me to reboot.
    When i went back to XP to insert my password the keyboard wasn't working! i tried the mouse but that wasn't either! I tried external mice and keyboards (including apple ones) but none helped, the light on my trackball wasn't on so it wasn't even activated by the OS...

    can't seem to find anyone with the same problem with google.. please help!!

    same here


    Same **** happened to me, but 3 days after updating to bc 1.1. Suddenly the ESC key was not working, then I pulled out the keyboard and mouse, replugged, played another 1/2 hours of Quake 4, then Quake 4 froze, I was able to use kb but not the mouse, restart, since then no kb, no mouse. Mouse pointer shows, but can't move, keyboard's NumLock flashes on plugging, but else it's useless, too. XP repair install didn't help, SAFE mode does the same.
    A message shows up "Load KeyboardAgent Driver Failed!" - and that's from the Apple Keyboard Support application.

    I know it's beta, but it's worse, then the previous release... Or can we all have just a nasty virus?

    some result

    Hey ergelo, I've got some results. I did a repair install (that is almost like a new intall of xp, only chosing REPAIR (R) instead of new install), than logged in into safe mode. For 1 minute I did not have keyboard/mouse, than it just began to work. I restarted, all seems fine, except my ESCAPE key is still not working, but both keyboard and mouse are usable.
    I read on other forums, that repetead repair install may fix the problem. Well, not logical, but worked for me.
