Pressing any key has no effect at all. I think where you are in the loading you don't need any keys.
I think you're wrong. I think you may be misunderstanding how soon in the process I see the problem. This is the initial text screen. Where it says "press [enter] to continue".
Tell me if your mouse works and can you click on the thing in the far left bottom? It takes a long time to go on but just be patient.
As I understand it, there's no mouse driver loaded at this point. There's certainly no mouse pointer visible. And I wouldn't expect to see one. Dave...
