Today I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 x64 .iso but when trying it out in live cd the keyboard of both my laptop and a microsoft branded one didn't work. I was planning into installing Ubuntu in a partition but I couldn't even put my info in the installation process to do it.

Is this a problem with the .iso or the driver? because I'm afraid that if I can actually go ahead with the installation then the keyboard won't work after that too.

Don't know if it's going to work, but did you try to test Ubuntu 32 bits version? It's suggested to do it if:

3) You have hardware / peripherals that are not yet supported for some odd reason under 64-bit.

Drivers. I've had similar troubles with the keyboard and mouse since 9.04, nothing has worked yet. It'll persist after you install most likely :(
