Hey Guys,

I am trying to install Windows 8, but I cant seem to get the mouse or keyboard to work when the install window loads up. I have tried updating the bios to the latest version (F6), as well as playing with the bios settings, but I can not seem to get it working. I have reset the bios options to the optimized settings. I made sure to use a USB 2.0 port on my PC, but had no luck.
I am open to any suggestions that I can try. I have a Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Master mobo. Any help is much appreciated.

And remember to always make a new install drive when you upgrade your hardware. It's quite common for the older installers to be incompatible with newer hardware and cause problems with the installation or fail to install completely
