The Stream does support a USB keyboard but just not on the Bit Locker screen. Not supporting a soft keyboard is a device issue. HP replaced my Stream with a refurbished model that is working fine. It will stay at Win 8 until 10 is officially announced.
BTW, HP no longer offers the recovery disk, it has been removed from their web site. Based on readings of other threads, it frequently didn't work.
