So my imac G5 recently came upon the flashing folder icon. I realized it was most likely a failure in the hardrive and replaced it. I got a copy of a startup disk and inserted it and tried to boot but i have a feeling its not recgnizing the keyboard and now it wont eject the disk. What can i do?

I just had this problem with a mac mini and from what I read you need to have an original apple keyboard for this to work,and I think wireless wont work no matter what (I THINK)
