    Support...this is a bunch of bunk...I have no issue with using a USB Keyboard or Mouse with any other company products that loads after posting the bios..and your recovery media is 50/50 that it will work or not..seems to depend on how your next released is coded....USB support works flawlessy..when your media loads and you need to select which option you need..'full or safe' or 'continue with windows' selection..once that is made your recovery cd then continues to load it own drivers....thats when USB support is lost...its not windows fault but Arconis.

    a good example would be version 9.1.3534 Server Edition that gave me full USB support thoughout Arconis GUI until the 'exit' to reboot..then you come out with 9.1.3567 Server and it then loses all USB Mouse Support once it goes past your 'selection' screen to the 'black' loading drivers screen thats in quiet mode.

    many paid customers of your product do have a 'need' and 'use' a boot recovery CD that they burn to a normal 700mb media. I notice from time to time your 'recovery' program burned to the cd varies from each version release from 38mb to as high as 58mbs....38mbs must be saving on drivers..huh!...I noticed you posted on your support forum 'How to navigate without a Mouse'...thats a Cop Out...feel free to use the extra 600mbs of the customers CD for your paid product.

    Maybe you continue to have a high fear of people just creating a 'recovery cd' and throwing it up on a warez site..and your fear is understandable and justified..but don't slam the customer who paid and needs full support of hardware....get 'wise' and make it so its computer dependent when created...if that customer is using a USB mouse..then see to it the 'recovery cd' is burned with the needed drivers....would you like to be told 'how to navigate a river without a boat'
