    I have dual boot with 8 and 7 and using 8's boot screen. As soon as the boot screen open I am not able to do anything. Keyboard and mouse do not work. After around 15 seconds they start working and I am able to make a selection. If I press ENTER when the boot screen appears, after those 15 seconds it automatically launches the first OS on the screen.

    What could be the problem?

    Do you have a wireless keyboard and mouse?

    Nope.

    I have a USB TP-Link wireless network adapter.

    How can I enable it in the MSI click bios? I already have mouse input in the bios.

    I have to disable USB V3 in my BIOS otherwise mine does the same. Its to do with the default USB V3 drivers I think. I will try installing the ones for my board and report back if this solves the issue.

    Legacy enabled or disabled still the same.
    I only have my SSD hard drive on the boot list, nothing else.
    The bios is updated to 1.4 (newest).

    Still can't fix this.

    I now have Windows 8 final release, purchased today and I thought Call of Duty 2 was going to work properly but it doesn't so I still need dual boot with Windows 7. If I could get rid of dual boot this wouldn't be an issue but I want to play Call of Duty 2. :D
