Help! Installation with grub boot can not recognize my kb

my keyboard is a USB one, I wanna install a new arch on my machine. the ps/2 port is already out of work. And I don't have a cd.. So I attempt to boot via grub and start a harddisk installation, just like what I did last time..However,since i changed a new usb kb, the installation cannot recognize it...
I know, booting from a cd, using "NEEDUSB" can help.. I wanna know whether there is something like this in grub commands...
otherwise, I won't be able to install it~~~ :oops:  :oops:

Re: Help! Installation with grub boot can not recognize my kb

try booting a live distro then chroot into whats on pc
setup your mkinitrd or initcpio to have usb modules loaded into it
reboot

youll probably need to mount --bind /dev /where/pc/partition/dev
or mknod the /dev 's needed
