Have you tried an IR Recovery at startup (home key)?

    Ay, EAZ and RB users, have you tried a recovery while your application is loading, i.e. hitting the home key? This morning I had to do that and it brought up the whole menu, Recover being on top, however, I had no mouse functionality. I hit Enter, thinking that Recover, being on top and the point of the program, would be selected by default. After a few minutes I just did a hard reboot since nothing happened. I really don't think it did a recovery although my PC is fine. If you've had to do this, how did you do it, was your mouse and keyboard functional? Thank You!

    I have done it multiple times with EAZ-FIX. The mouse is functional in my setup.

    I suspect that either your motherboard doesn't natively support a usb mouse (is it a usb mouse?) or the option to support it is turned off in the bios.

    However, the good news is that you don't need a mouse to navigate the EF/RB pre-boot menu :) (can't say about Ay, but I would think it was the same).

    When you boot into the menu (with the Home key), press the down arrow key once and that will highlight the Recover option. Press Enter and you are in the window to select your snapshot. Use the arrow keys to move up and down and the Tab key to move onto the other buttons and away you go :) .

    The mouse and key board are both wireless. Might have had something to do with it. I thought I did try the down key. I'll mess with it sometime today.
