Thank you for posting your query!


Well from the issue you reported you can try checking if PXE boot is enabled in bios. Also since you are trying to install Windows 10 OS in the unit, you need to make sure secure boot is enabled and legacy boot is disabled under Advanced > Secure boot configuration option in bios.


Its just Key board or mouse as well? USB devices not responding can be related to processor ( Skylake ). So need to check what processor was shipped with the unit to provide further information.


Hope this helped.
