Later kernels broke one or two boxes keyboard/mouse detection this way
(particularly if I remember boxes with PS/2 keyboard and USB mouse).
There are some boot options to adjust the way the keyboard and mouse is
probed that may help in some cases:

At the grub message about "Booting ... in  seconds" hit a key, select the
kernel you want, edit the boot line as per the directions and you can
play with the following options one at a time

i8042.noaux  (if you have no PS/2 mouse this may help)
i8042.nomux (usually fixes stuff)
i8042.nopnp (probably not relevant for most PCs)
i8042.unlock (if the keyboard won't let you type but this is usually
weird laptop specific)
