USB Keybord Issue Really Got Me!!

I was helping one of my friends in installing his new machine with Windows XP when i really came across this scenario.

After i set the BIOS first boot devise as the CD ROM and trying to boot from the windows XP CD the screen shows that it has detected the CD and shows the message "Press any key to boot from CD" but when i press Enter or any other key it skip to the next boot device.

Finally i found out that although the keyboard works fine when you in BIOS screen but as soon the PC trying to boot from the CD the keyboard get disable. This is really funny!! :P
So finally i tried out a PS/2 keyboard guessing that there may be issues with USB keyboards and my guess was right and it really booted from CD like a baby. :D

I don't know what was the reason for this unpredictable behavior. probably the motherboard issue(it's a Gigabyte motherboard) or else the keyboard(maybe because the keyboard is Panora brand made in China) or else it's probably a issue with USB keyboards it self.

I really don't know the actual answer but i will never going to recommend a USB keyboard to anyone in future!!
