Can you enter a terminal in EBCD and try uelsk8s' suggestion?
Thank you nightflier for the response.
Yes I can, I have 12 boot options:
Emergency Boot CD by M. Kubchik
1. System Software...
2. File Manager
3. AIDA16: Hard ware Information
4. Rescue Linux
5. NT Password Editor
7. Drive fittness test
8. Registry tool for Windows XX
9. Smart boot manager
10. More info
11. Skip CD-ROM boot
12. Boot 1st IDE HDD
I used 3. to check how the mouse is identified and it said the mouse is a " LGI800B Logitech MouseMan Serial" mouse.
If I use option 4. I can open a terminal and I tried uelsk8s' suggestion but there is NO reaction when I move the mouse.
On the other hand, when I choose 1. , what I normally do to access my hard drive for partitioning purposes (fdisk), it says "Micrsoft MS-DOS 7.1 Startup Menu" and I am asked if I wish to load the mouse driver. If I say yes, in all the following menus the mouse works just fine.
Is there a linux mouse driver to install? Where can I find it?
Any suggestion is very much appreciated!!!
