Default Dual Boot..wireless Keyboard

Hi...I have partition magic...dual boot with XP & XP PRO.....

With my wired keyboard & mouse ....Have no problem with switching between operating systems....just pressed the up & down arrows to make the switch....

Just hooked up MS...wireless keyboard & mouse ....but when when I press the up & down arrows...nothing happens...and after the 30 second time limit it just boots into XP.....

I have tried pressing other keys & no luck..

Any suggestions???

Thanks in advance...

OK...I have solved half of my problem....

I connected the wireless keyboard & mouse via ps/2 port..and it works..switching between the 2 OS's....

BUT I want to connect the wireless Keyboard & mouse via USB 2.0 connection...

Is it possible ???

Or can I connect them both...or will there be a hardware conflict??
