I was able to get my USB keyboard and mouse working in the installer by following these instructions:
However, I got stuck at the next point where it keeps asking for CD/DVD-ROM drivers (I don't have such a drive).
Thanks for the input. That is (unfortunately) the idea that should work but doesn't! This particular newest Celeron CPYH must have yet another flaw at the firmware/chipset/bios level. Intel's instructions go one step further to include the driver addition to the install.wim file too. And that still didn't help. I've now tried all flavors of Windows, x86 & x64, usb2 and usb3 thumbs, external DVD and sprinkling fairy dust. It sounds like they need to issue a 'feature' to 'turn off usb3 ', make it respond as vanilla usb2, if that can even be done.
3rd NUC, first Celeron, first issue. Not gonna love them anymore if this keeps up.
OK, this worked for me:
When I first started this process I, like everyone else, couldn't get the keyboard and mouse to work after the initial boot and I was stuck. I then used the instructions from this web site to add the USB 3.0 drivers to the boot.wim image and I had keyboard and mouse after the initial USB boot.
After the Windows install, I was again stuck on the screen that asked you for a user ID and computer name. No keyboard or mouse. I made a few modifications to the DSIM commands I used to get the USB 3.0 drivers into the BOOT.WIM file and installed them into the INSTALL.WIM file so that after the install reboot, I had keyboard and mouse again.
The kicker was changing the “index” number to my version of Windows I was using, which was “4” for me since I was using Win7K Ultimate 64.
1 = Home Basic
2 = Home Premium
3 = Professional
4 = Ultimate
DISM /Mount-WIM /WimFile:"install.wim" /index:4 /MountDir:"mount"
DISM /image:mount /add-driver:"USB3" /recurse
DISM /unmount-wim /mountdir:mount /commit
Other commands I found useful:
Thanks for your comments regarding this issue.
I'm experiencing the issue at the step you described as:
"After the Windows install, I was again stuck on the screen that asked you for a user ID and computer name. No keyboard or mouse."
At the moment what happens, is, I have no way to reboot in command mode in order to put the command you suggested and worked for you.
As at this step W7 is installed in the hard drive, I assume you have to pass these commands to the hard drive ? Or should all these be done on the usb stick and re make the intallation for the beginning??
Any comments, suggestions, help will be very appreciated.
