Wireless keyboard

Is it possible to make a wireless keyboard behave like an ordinary keyboard.
I’ve just purchased a wireless desktop and now find that I can no longer
select anything until the operating system is loaded. This includes the
inability to access the bios settings or to select from the various
operating systems in a multiboot system.

My guess is that it’s USB. So really the same problem as pretty much
all USB keyboards can have. You might see if there is some kind of
legacy something-or-another option for your USB support.

I think I looked at the bios settings and found nothing useful but will try
again.

Thanks for the suggestion. My bios setting was set to auto, which you would
think should work but didn’t. Once changed to enabled, the keyboard now
works.
