keyboard not working on E8310 laptop
|Reported by:||helix84||Owned by:||nobody|

When I first started Haiku (tha latest nightly, hrev43375) on bare metal (a Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook E8310), the keyboard didn't work.
I tried to look for some compatibility option in BIOS concerning keyboard, but there is none. Then I tried recovery mode and keyboard worked. I was trying to pinpoint exactly which recovery option helps, but it turned out none was necessary! It was sufficient to press Shift to bring up the Haiku boot menu and then proceed booting normally. Keyboard will then work in Haiku itself. That has worked across several reboots - no keyboard when I forgot to bring up Haiku boot menu; keyboard works when I did.
But the next day, with some boots into Windows XP and Ubuntu in between, I booted Haiku again and the keyboard never worked no matter what I tried.
Do you need me to attach some log?
