Of course you helped! At least you've tried! In the meanwhile, I guess I already passed the problem away: I shut down the computer unplugged the mouse, I pressed de "esc" key (and kept it pressed), turned the machine on again, pressed "F1", then "Home", then "End" and finaly the "Y" key to save and quit. Just like that. And the system started but with no mouse. I tried to plug the mouse using the "PS2" adappter as usual (I only have 2 USB and a unusefull PS2), but it didn't work; the error came along again. Then I tried direcctly from the USB, and it's running allright. I believe the problem was in the adapter or in the PS2 entry.
But thank you very much for answering.

So you have a PS/2 to USB adapter? I have not seen one of them. When USB keyboards first came out many were shipped with a USB ot PS/2 adapter. Sometimes only that particular adapter would work. I am not sure if the reverse type adapter will work but I guess if someone makes it then it is possible.

Did you hot plug it, or connect and then boot?

I've used both types of adapter (each way) and, so far, found them universal.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm afraid you understood it in the reverse way: I was talking about an adapter from PS2 to USB. But don't worry, my problem is solved now.
Thanks any way.

Yes, PS2 to USB adapters do exist, I've used them - see here:
