Default Windows installation problem

Hello all!

I purchased everything to build my new computer and I did it successfully. When I tried to install Windows I followed all the instructions and when I was requested to hit the "F8" key to accept the EULA nothing happens. Everything else works fine ( esc, pageup,page down,etc) but not the F8 to continue with the installation. I tried with 2 different keyboards and the same problem. Both keyboards are very basic and PS/2, (they don't have the F lock or anything like that).

Is there anyway that I can enable de "Function" keys?

Can anybody help me to understand what is happening?

Thank you in advance.
