I got the same kind of keyboard, but I can't use it on a USB port when typing on the command prompt (e.g.: before entering Windows setup (installer) from BIOS or whatever the black DOS thing is called :D).. If you entered the Windows Install program from the command prompt (did you start to install windows from the command prompt or from another previous windows installation?), then it should be alright.. If the problem is not with the keyboard keys or anything, then one of those converters for USB keyboards to PS/2 should fix it (my multimedia keyboard came with it..) :)
