I reinstalled XP Pro on a Dell 745 computer. At the login screen I have no USB keyboard support. I can RDP to the computer and login, then keyboard drivers are loaded, but on reboot, the same problem occurs. I have enabled USB keyboard in the bios. How can I put USB drivers in the intial install?

It would be very unlikely the system doesn't already have those drivers, they are generic, and Windows will retrieve them automatically from Windows Update if required. Your problem sounds like a different problem entirely. –  Ramhound Aug 29 '13 at 14:58
    
Have you run Windows Updates and made sure you're at least at the latest Service Pack (SP3 on XP)? –  music2myear Aug 29 '13 at 15:25

Did you install the motherboard drivers? Perhaps the problem is it can not see the USB Host itself, not the keyboard. –  Scott Chamberlain Aug 29 '13 at 15:49
    
Have you logged on to the system directly and not through RDP? Does the RDP session use the Local Administrator account? Once logged on locally, drivers will install –  Dave M Aug 29 '13 at 17:04
    
Sounds like you're missing chipset drivers or the USB hub drivers. Have you opened Device Manager to see what devices have errors? –  Moses Aug 30 '13 at 13:32
