I have already read the sticky about the F11 trick, but it is not working for me when I booting from TI9 latest build recovery CD. I am hitting teh F11 key rigth after the system starts booting into linux, but there is no response from the system untill it gets stuck at teh GUI and at that point my mouse/KB are completely stuck as rock. I am using a Microsoft Keyboard and Logitech mouse, both are wirelessly connected and they work flawlessly in day to day work. I am really wondering if TI really cares for customers with such problems? I have seen quite a few posts with this problem. And if you guys do care to resolve this problem, how difficult it is to tweak the kernel in an updated verion of TI9? It's been two months now and I guess we should have soem recourse on our way. In any case, I need some help to fix this problem. Another question, does the full version of TI recovery system allows copying data to a USB diskdrive? I saw this feature is not available in the safe mode.
