I have a Samsung All In One desktop computer. It's one of the touch screen ones. I am trying to install Windows 7 due to incomparable audio software with Windows 8 - plus I can not stand Windows 8.

I downloaded an untouched version of Windows 7 64bit Home Premium. I already have a license from a broken laptop - in fact 2 broken laptops. So the plan was to use one of those license keys with Windows 7. I download from http://www.digital-kaos.co.uk/forums/f94/original-untouched-windows-7-sp1-iso-32-bit-64-bit-220877/

When I am trying to install the wireless keyboard is not being detected. So, I went out and purchased a USB keyboard. That also doesn't work.

How can I install Windows 7 if wireless and wired keyboards are not being detected by the installer? Is it the computer that's at fault? Or Samsung trying to stop Windows 7 being installed? It makes no sense because the motherboard can recognize the keyboard during normal boot up (i.e. I can press F2 and access the Bios).

Any ideas on what to do?

Edit:

USB Legacy mode is enabled in the Bios. There are no options for PS/2 emulation. This computer doesn't even have a PS/2 port.

This sounds like a pure driver problem. If this is one of Samsung's new All in One desktops its likely there won't be Windows 7 drivers. Furthermore you legally cannot transfer an OEM license of Windows 7 to your Samsung computer. –  Ramhound Nov 14 '13 at 17:21
