Windows 10: No mouse during Windows 10 install

    No mouse during Windows 10 install


    Hi
    I'm re-installing Windows 10 and am at the screen where I need to select Language. There are 2 options: English US & English UK.
    My problem is that I'm unable to select either or click next because there is no mouse pointer.
    I've attempted to continue using just the keyboard by highlighting English UK and using the Enter/Return key but this does not work.
    I can highlight either option using the Tab key but that is all so I'm stuck on this screen.
    How can I continue?
    The mouse is working on the second monitor but absent on the one I need.

    Disconnect the second monitor during installation.

    We recommend that all extra devices not be connected during a Windows install. Nothing but the primary monitor, mouse and keyboard, the hard drive being installed to, and the Windows 10 installation media from which Windows 10 is being installed. I just seems to create less problems to add the other hardware after installation.

    Sounds like a good idea. I'll remember that for next time.
