|You could try a USB to PS2 adapter.|
So, normally, does the keyboard only work once you get booted into windows 2000?
I would think, a BIOS driver should do the job. Unless when they built your machine they didn't think to include one. Maybe you should look into whether there are any BIOS updates available for that model. Once your up and stable that is.
I wonder are you able to even enter BIOS with your keyboard? I think that boot screen maybe driven by the OS. Could it be, that the keyboard stops working when the screen appears and your BIOS and the OS are just not working together at that point?
Can you boot from a floppy or CD/DVD and make the necessary fix?
