That doesn't appear to work with my wireless keyboard and the hotfixes on that page don't appear to work for Vista. :(

Andy,

Double check you BIOS settings to make sure they are set to allow USB at boot, then see if it works. :)

I did as you said. The only thing not set was Legacy USB Support so I enabled it, which did nothing. Since I was able to get to the BIOS, I didn't think it would work anyway.

I was also having problems accessing Asus Express Gate so I thought that might be related. I then moved the receiver to a different USB port and Express Gate worked, but this bypass did not. I moved the receiver back and again had the problem with Express Gate. I uninstalled the Logitech software and uninstalled hidden HID-Compliant Devices, Mice, and Keyboards in Device Manager. I put the receiver back where it should be and installed the software.

I have now fixed Express Gate, but this bypass auto-login keystroke still doesn't work. There was also an incident where the BIOS changed the boot disk assignment which confused me for a couple hours as I did constant startup repairs but that's a different issue.

Keep playing with the bypass to see if you may get it to work for you. You only have a few brief seconds to press the keys. If you miss that window of time, it won't work. It can be a bit tricky to get it just right.

It works with my old PS2 keyboard, but not with my Wireless USB keyboard. I guess I'll have to live without it unless there's another way of getting to the registry without going through the default profile.

It still seems like the "USB keyboard" or "USB" at boot type BIOS setting may not be enabled. If you don't have this setting in BIOS, then you might check to see if you have the latest BIOS version installed in case it may have been added in a newer version than you currently have.

All USB settings were enabled in the BIOS, I also re-flashed the BIOS. It was already at the latest version. The keyboard works with ASUS Express Gate and also allows me into the BIOS which means the computer is getting keypresses from the keyboard.

20150514_114855[1].jpg

This is a snapshot of my USB Configuration page of my BIOS. I didn't change anything. However, when I exited, the BIOS changed my Hard Disk Boot Priority on its own and added a non-system disk and two USB devices as boot devices before my system disk. So it wouldn't boot because it was a non-system disk. Also, my mouse which also uses the same Unifying USB receiver no longer works for Express Gate. It worked before today. I am seriously frustrated at this point.

In that case, it appears to come down to timing and pressing the key at that very limited time frame to do so. :(

Change "Legacy USB Support" from "Auto" to "Enabled", and save.

I had already done that before and it didn't help so I put it back. The thing is that people have had this trouble and MS has put out hotfixes, but only for XP, 7, and 8. They skipped Vista.

Holding down a shift key or repeatedly tapping a shift key not only failed, but brought up multiple dialog boxes asking me if I wanted to start Sticky Keys. I finally got it to work by pressing alternating shift keys very quickly. It only worked if I started pressing while the little bar that goes back and forth was visible. I tried using alternating shift keys with one hand, but I was too slow, so handicapped people can't do it that way. So I tried tapping on a single shift key in double time. It worked, but my wrist almost tired out in the process plus I got the multiple Sticky Key dialogs.

Windows must check in two or more places during boot up to see if you reaaaalllly want to bypass the autologon. I tried starting later or ending earlier and it failed. It's not very user friendly.

Yeah, you can only doing it during boot when that bar is showing.

It's about like pressing F8 at boot for advanced boot options. You only have that one or two seconds to do it.

Right, but with this, you have to keep doing it for up to a minute and some people's hands can't move as fast as I had to.
