The Tab key should allow you to highlight "Back" or "Install".

Works for me (just tested).
I can navigate with tab till this point!!when i arrive here can only select the drive!!

Unless the "click" doesn't work because you have a problem with a stuck key on the keyboard.
Well i dont know if this is the cause

I still suspect you have a stuck key on your keyboard
I dont think its the case!! If that was like that i couldnt navigate on the os and before i formatted i used the os for two days without the left click !!! At that time i would use the alt key 5 times to alternate between keyboard and mouse

I agree completely, I also don't think it's the case. But, it may be the keyboard.

(Sorry, I couldn't resist... Anyway, You have to try the keyboard tips again. Do them as they were presented by bruno09. There's no reason those keyboard hints should not work, assuming the keyboard is working properly.
And, you could always connect a USB keyboard, and try again from a keyboard that you are sure is working.

That being said, I did try it. I booted to a El Cap USB installer, and got all the way to selecting the drive. But, could not go beyond that point. I tried lots of different keys and key combinations. Tried this several times, and can't install from the keyboard.
@Bruno09 - the Space, then tab to highlight, then space: nothing at all happens, the Install button never highlights. Nothing happens, and the install doesn't magically start - unless I use a mouse to click on the Install button. I can't do it from the keyboard - frustrating!
Perhaps it is a bug in the ElCap installer (?)
