Keyboard and Mouse do not work when installing Windows 7

HP Recommended
HP 260 G2 Desktop Mini PC
FreeDOS

I have purchased the Desktop Unit with Free DOS in order to install Windows 7 (HP 260 G2 Desktop Mini PC). I also got a booteable USB with OS installer ready and handy. The keyboard and Mouse connected to USB 2.0, perfectly WORKING during the startup BIOS booting. Once I have selected to boot from USB., the Windows installer starts OK. Then, when installation screen appears, the keyboard and mouse are automatically disabled. I have changed all USB, I have selected legacy USB, unselected legacy USB, tried every possible solution in almost every forum.This unit does not have a keyboard PS2 to use, all is USB, so... I do need help!!!!

For free, from a working computer, you can download the original software for your model of computer.

Then, install Windows 7 from this download.
