Makes sense, DOS dosent support USB. Whoever created the USB keyboard didnt create it for techs, just for the end user who needed something that can plug in easily. But yes, that was a very good thing to point out. Nobody asked the simplist of al questions though, although I am guilty of that as well. Does the keyboard work? Does the DEL key on it work? Try a different keyboard, maybe it is the DEL key. most of the time the easiest solution is the most effective. Some straight up MythBusters knowledge dropped up in this piece.
