So after staying away from Linux for a while because of less than stellar experiences I thought I'd give it a shot again so I got the 18.04 .iso, burned it to DVD and booted off of it for a test drive. First thing, the mouse is completely dead. Then I realize, so is the keyboard. I pressed the computer's power button and it said it'll shut down after 60 seconds, which it tried to do by ejecting the DVD and telling me to press Enter, but of course I can't do that. Both input devices are nothing special that need special drivers and both are plugged into USB 2.0 ports on the rear port cluster.
So that's that. Any thoughts?
Never seen that happen before, and I've 18.04 with VirtualBox, vmWare Player, AMD E-350, Various Intel machines from Apollo lake Atoms, Core 2s to Core i7s. Are you UEFI booting or Legacy (I've used it with both of those too)?
Have you another system you can try this on? Are the keyboard and mouse going through a hub (maybe reconnect them, it should pick them up). I would have thought JBI would have tried this with similar hardware to you (Pile Driver era stuff I think?).
In my experience, if I'm going to have USB issues, it's going to be with Windows so odd that it's not working for you.
