Default Help- keydoard not working - 01-31-2010, 07:18 PM

I upgraded from 10.6 to 10.6.1 and re-ran the bootinstaller and after i restarted the keyboard did not work, i tried reinstalling 10.6 which worked, but the keyboard still doesnt work, i can boot it up using a usb keyboard, and the internal keyboard works on BIOS and before the apple pops up with the pinwheel upon startup, past that it the internall keyboard will not work. any solutions?

Did you slim your install using Monolingual, perchance?

I have seen others have this issue if they removed the wrong things.

well initially the first time i tried to reinstall i did, but after that i tried reinstalling without slimming the install. but all of this was not done from the syslinux bootloader, only the first install was, should i format the drive so syslinux can start up and reinstall via usb? because normally the OSX install will not let syslinux boot up.
