USB boot problem flashdrive and hdd installed linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 21, 2012
Have installed few distros on USB hadd and flash drive.
(NOT liveCD and liveUSB).
IDEA was produce MOBILE-PC on 8GB flash drive and give friends and relatives as INTERESTING gift.
Started dual boot on a SAMSUNG hdd.
Installed UBUNTU10 and opensuse12 32bit = OK
Then had to change my laptop with a new HP dv7.
What I did: Get a 8GB fast USB 3.0 flashdrive
Use GPARTED (4GB ROOT-3.5GB HOME and 500MB SWAP).
Disconnect HDD and install 64bit on FLASHDRIVE.
Only FUDUNTU is succelfull at this time.
SUCCESFULL on both flashdrive and usb-hdd
UBUNTU and MINT unsuccesfull.
Have been trying all I found in web to fix them.
Have been tryıng to change grub options.
Download and run boot repair tool etc etc.
All I get a flashing cursor or if press shift key
"GRUB loading" message.
UBUNTU 11.10 tested on USB HDD unsuccesful.
My QUESTION is: If we can boot using liveUSB we should
be able to boot after installing distro.
HOW CAN I use boot loader in liveUSB to boot my installed flashdrive?.

Keyboard Problem During Linux Installations
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2012
Have a VERY old Dell box I want to renew with a Linux install (also as OS test drive for my new computer build). Downloaded, checked, burned, checked Puppy Linux 4.2.1, Linux Mint 10, Peppermint Two, and Kubuntu 11.10. All discs are fine.
Have set up BIOS to boot to CD/DVD before HDD.
I get to a spot, though, where the install freezes up. Based on my experience with Puppy, it's where the software is trying to detect my mouse and keyboard. Puppy recognizes my mouse correctly, but I can't hit "Enter" on keyboard because Puppy does not recognize the PS/2 keyboard I have. The other OSs freeze at a spot where the icon is on screen and the dots have been changing color, but suddenly the dots stop changing color and the install disc is not spinning.
I have tried a USB keyboard, thinking that might be the culprit. I have changed the BIOS to disable "Legacy USB" and then I reenabled it. Nothing.
Do I have the wrong distro releases? Do I need to reformat my HDD to do a fu
External USB keyboard not work in Linux (work in Bios and win...)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 27, 2013
I have old notebook Acer ferrari 3000. The built-in keyboard does not function any more so I attached a USB-keyboard to that notebook. The USB-keyboard work ok in Windows and in BIOS and all the way to select boot OS in grub, but as soon as the system boots in to the Linux system (I have tried both Mint and now Mageia), the keyboard stop working. I did have other USB-keyboard that did work, but it was much bigger and when I did move from one country to another I did leave that keyboard behind (to big in the notebook bag). Now I have two USB-Keyboard in the home, both working on my desktop computer (in Linux), but not on my notebook computer. Now I am not able to use the notebook unless using Onboard (on-screen) keyboard and that is very very boring.
The Bios configuration don't have any function to enable USB-keyboard and don't have any option to dissable USB2.0 (both solutions I have found when searching the Internet), so I am stuck here.
Is there something I can do to solve this?
USB keyboard & mouse stop working intermittently on Linux Mint 12 boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 7, 2011
Been trying to get Mint 12 up and running on my desktop, but I am having an issue that's driving me crazy. Basically my USB keyboard and mouse turn off immediately before I get to the login screen, but it is intermittent.
Sometimes when it occurs I can reboot and it will be fine, other times (like now) I can reboot all I want and the problem will not stop occurring.
I've searched all over and can't even find anyone with a similar problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Some hardware information:
logitech g500 mouse
msi p67a-gd53 mobo w/i5-2500k
I've tried swapping keyboards and mice around also and it doesn't help.
KVM switch problem in Ubuntu using wireless USB keyboard and mouse
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 18, 2008
I have a problem that seems to be pretty common out there... at least there are a lot of threads discussing this. I was not able to find one that solved it, so I am throwing it out there again to see if anyone can help.
Here is the high-level situation. I am using a Belkin Flip USB KVM switch to switch between two machines; Windows Vista and Ubuntu 8.04. The keyboard and mouse are a Microsoft wireless combo using the MS wireless desktop receiver v3.1.
On a fresh boot, things work fine, at least for a while. I can use the KVM switch to switch between the two machines without problem. If I leave the switch pointing to the Windows machine for an extended period of time and try to switch back to Ubuntu, the mouse and keyboard are dead. The wireless receiver has a couple of status lights on it and they go dark when the switch is made. I can switch back to Vista and everything lights back up and works correctly. The Ubuntu side is dead until I restart the machine.

[SOLVED] Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon 64 bit on Asus Vanguard B85: no USB keyboard and mouse
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 15, 2014
I installed Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon 64 bit, on a new system, based on an Asus Vanguard B85 Haswell board, with a Core i7 4770S.
The live USB boots normally, keyboard and mouse are working fine, and the installation on the Crucial M500 SSD finished without problems.
(BTW: I am posting this on the same system, booted from the live USB.)
The system boots off the SSD, shows the login screen, and then both keyboard and mouse are dead. The system itself seems to be running, because the clock keeps showing the correct time, and after some time the screensaver blanks the screen.
I tried several things (xHCI enabled/disabled in BIOS, VT-d enabled/disabled, with/without kernel parameter iommu=soft or iommu=on, plug mouse and keyboard in USB 2.0 port, in USB 3.0 port). All with the same result: keyboard and mouse are dead.
syslog shows the following for keyboard, mouse, and Wacom Intuos:
Linux usb gadget HID driver problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 27, 2010
I use the linux 188.8.131.52 kernel on an embedded board. The problem is that I want to use the usb gadget HID to connect my board on the PC as a HID device. I compile the kernel with all needed options. The g_hid driver is compile as module. When I do a modprobe g_hid an error is return with no such device.
Can someone help me?
Can someone tell me how the /dev/hidgx is created and which is the major and minor number. I have search in the device.txt file and on Internet but I don't find anything. This driver has been developped in the 2.6.35 kernel version and I don't know if someone use it?
Connect ps/2>usb keyboard to linux?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 8, 2012
I have a lovely ancient ergonomic keyboard (no name SK - 6000) connected via a DIN->ps/2 adapter to a ps/2->usb adapter to my docking station. After Grub it stops working. It takes either suspending and waking up or replugging it while Linux is running to get it to work. No extra kernel modules get loaded for this. When it works and I restart without power off, it will work immediately.
Even when it does not work, it is visible (lsusb device number varies but output is identical whether working or not):

Linux: attach USB keyboard to augment serial console
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 8, 2014
I'm using an embedded linux system who boot into a "fastboot" environment which is kind of a lite Debian distrib using busybox. The device have a touch screen and two usb port.
The configured boot script have these lines that might be related:
stty -F $CONSOLE ospeed 115200 > /dev/null 2>&1
It then check for a USB drive, mount it and launch a specific filename if available to act as a USB update mechanism.
My goal is to use this script launch a touchscreen calibration utility. Problem is, this utility (not mine) check for key input coming from the console from which it was launched and plugging a USB keyboard don't work. I would also like it to accept ctrl+c to quit the utility and keep processing the rest of the boot script after completion.
If I connect an extension board to some pin-out and use a computer with putty to connect to this serial interface and send the keys from there it work, but my goal is to get this worki
