    Hey everyone,

    I've got XP installed on my Mac mini (latest version of the 1.66) and it's been running fine until the other day, when I booted up it doesn't allow me to use the mouse or keyboard. no error message, no nothing.

    Anyone got any ideas? Both work perfectly in OS X.

    Standard wired USB Apple keyboard - ditto for mighty mouse, both plugged in direct to the mini itself.

    as soon as you've selected the option to boot into windows, unplug the keyboard and mouse. Once windows has booted plug in the keyboard. If you hear the 'bing bong' device detected sound but the keyboard still fails to work, for some reason windows doesn't understand which device has been connected. If you hear no 'bing bong' sounds like the USB driver has become corrupted.
