Best order for hooks in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

Using

HOOKS=(base udev autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard consolefont encrypt fsck)

when laptop is docked, I'm unable to type my system encryption password using external keyboard.
Is there a different order of the hooks, or a new hook, or another method that enables me to type it using external keyboard?

Using the fallback initrd is the issue still present?

tl;dr put the keyboard hook before autodetect

According to the wiki:

Tip: For systems that are booted with different hardware configurations (e.g. laptops with external keyboard vs. internal keyboard or headless systems), it is helpful to place this hook before autodetect in order to always include all keyboard drivers. Otherwise the external keyboard only works in early userspace if it was connected when creating the image.
