I can only access to BIOS from WINDOWS (if is possible!?) because my PS/2 ports are damaged and I want to open my 2 USB ports in BIOS!
This is my only chance to do something in DOS (with USB tastature, if it possible!?). I can`t format my hard disk because i have PCI cart with USB ports and USB tastature. Tastature become active after WINDOWS startup.

Thanks for requesting!

If that is the case then you will not be able to enter the bios setup on this board I'm afraid. Time to start saving for a new one...

@edwin: What happens if you use the F2 option with modbin and save changes on your live system ?

Non-working keyboard is mostly caused by blown fuse on the board. It's somewhere near the keyboard connector, marked F1, F2, FS1, FS2 or something like that. Sometimes, the fuse is OK but an inductor blows instead (marked L1 or L with any number).
