You're not alone in this. For some reason, emulating on Mac OS X trips some issue with the Registry.

USB keyboards, as they are emulated PS/2 devices under the current ReactOS driver model also do not work.

Tested:

Core2Duo
P5GC-MX
1Gb DDR800
20Gb Maxtor PATA
Pioneer DVD-RW PATA
Intel Pro/1000
Winmodem

on the latest rel version 32158.
the Ps/2 keyboard works on real hardware.
so for other people that have this problem download the latest SVN rel version.

OK. Keyboard Bug is fixed. But I have the other problem written in Bug #2913:
[ external image ]
I have tried it with bootlog, but it doesn't write the file during booting. And I had not built a serial cable to debug a file to laptop

What is a standard keyboard :?:
USB is NOT a standard keyboard or do you mean an old AT keyboard? I think, that will be run.

The small PS/2 connector and the old DIN one use the same protocol.

The problem is that keyboard and ps/2 mouse can't be properly detected on the x86-architecture because there are a lot bad/nonstandard implementations of the keyboard controller. The best way would probably be to assume they are always present and don't rely on success results of some control commands. In the ntddk driver they ignore some errors and name faulty hardware there.

If there's anyone who still cannot use a PS/2 or AT keyboard, please try the special version of r32494, which I uploaded here: http://svn.reactos.org/special-builds/

Create a debug log with this version and attach it to bug 2790.
The debug log will contain extra information about the i8042prt driver, which is used for the keyboard and mouse ports.

Best regards,

Colin
