No Keyboard at Boot (Windows 7 Leftover)

The Windows 7 installation messed up my computer. Aside from the boot-menu issue, my keyboard was suddenly unavailable from the second Windows started booting to the second it finally got loaded. So I couldn’t do a thing once I passed the normal boot and started the HD.

That was a USB keyboard, but I got a new PS/2 one and the computer seems to like it; I can send keyboard events at boot time just like before, even after booting into the HD. Weird.

Edit: I’m pretty sure it messed things up because my computer is REALLY, REALLY OLD and its hardware is terrible. Any computer manufactured in the last 4 years will be better than what I have now. :(
