    Win10 Install on Asus X205TA unusable: keyboard & mouse not recognised

    (First post in this forum)

    I recently re-installed Windows 10 on my Asus X205TA notebook using the ISO on a USB stick.
    It installed without a problem, but when I boot the computer now (first boot after installation),
    the OS does not recognise the keyboard and the mouse, so I cannot enter the required data
    to proceed to the next screen...

    Had seen an old thread in this forum mentioning a similar issue on a desktop machine
    but can't find that thread now.

    Seems like the required drivers are missing, and I am thinking a re-install may be necessary,
    but would anybody know how to get the keyboard and mouse drivers included (inserted?)
    in the installation process?

    Thanks in advance for comments...!

    A PS: I found an altogether non-technical solution, after it turned out that I was unable to get any information from Microsoft's website: I managed to trade in the Asus notebook in for an Acer notebook with Linux Mint on it. Not what I had in mind, but a computer that works beats one that doesn't want to work any time.
