Help!! I have read several places that a wired keyboard and mouse are needed for installing Windows 7, but then there is some question whether that is still true when using the new Boot Camp. So which is it, yes or no, a wired keyboard/mouse are still needed?

Sorry for the post! I see that someone has answered my previous similar question. But are the wired keyboard and mouse still needed with the upgraded Boot Camp?

I have just talked to Apple phone help (very friendly and helpful by the way) and yes, indeed, even with the updated Boot Camp you cannot use the wireless keyboard/mouse but must use a USB keyboard and mouse during installation until the drivers are later added during the process. The Apple person also noted that inexpensive ($7 about) USB keyboards and mice are available at such stores as WalMart.
