USB Keyboard not working with Installer - ASUS P67

Hello

I am trying to install Arch on my new PC, an ASUS P8P67 Pro LGA1155 Sandy Bridge with Intel i5-2500k.

I boot the 2010.05 Core Image from an USB stick and my keyboard works fine at the GRUB screen where I can select Install, Memtest, boot other OS, etc. but as soon Arch has loaded the keyboard is no longer working. I was trying both the USB2.0 and 3.0 ports.
This is a Roccat Arvo USB keyboard which has been working with Arch on my old PC. Ubuntu & Fedora LIVE Images dont have this problem. Is there anything I can pass to the Kernel line to get it working? Its quiet annoying I cant install Arch because of the keyboard.

Thanks in Advance and best regards.


Edit:

Well it looks like the 2010.05 image is too old and does not support the new P67 chipsets properly. When i boot from the archboot 2011.05-2 image my keyboard works fine. I can install this way but would prefer using the official installation media.

Any solution?

No solution, but I have an ASUS P8P67 motherboard and installed Arch last week with the 2010-05 image. I had no problems with my USB keyboard (from Logitech).

A warning: I installed Arch on my system with the original ("buggy") P67 chipset without any problems. After upgrading to the B3-stepping (version 3.1 actually), my network driver (r8169) didn't work properly anymore. (Connection was lost after a few minutes.) I had to install the r8168 driver from AUR to get it working again. This is easy on a running system, but a netinstall will not work.
