Default wireless keyboard question

Is it possible to use a wireless keyboard at boot time? For example, can I access the BIOS and boot menu with it?

Yes, you should be able too. I too had the same question when i purchased my wireless keyboard, but worked fine.....

If it is a USB keyboard, you may need to go into the BIOS and enable USB Keyboard and Mouse support

Yes. As long as there is power there should be a connection. If USB wasn't enabled in your BIOS (which almost all BIOS's have enabled), you'll need a PS/2 keyboard since legacy keyboards are natively supported.
