I have had better luck using a wired mouse in both BIBM & BING.
I do need to remove the USB dongle for my wireless mouse too.

Interesting. I doubt it would have done that with my system as iBIBM could not see the drive but windows could.....dont ask me how. Second I actually disconnected the other drives and only had the SSD connected so that explains a lot. Thanks.

If I install it again now will it pick up any windows systems on the other drives?? I think I will need to install it again anyway as it does not go to the boot menu but to partition work. and the mouse does not work in BIBM for some reason. so my TAB key is getting battered ;)

I would think if you uninstalled and then installed again, yes, but I really don't know.

I know its an old thread but I am struggling still...lol

" I think I will need to install it again anyway as it does not go to the boot menu but to partition work. and the mouse does not work in BIBM for some reason."

I wrote that above a in 2014 and it still goes to the partition work and does not boot unassisted.

How would I solve this one. lol

The mouse issue is a pain for some, like me. Tried every fix suggested with no joy ( I'm leaving it at that. 0_;^)

As to the other issue, when you create the BIBM install media don't choose the include Partition Work or whatever it is. That's what causes it to open by default. Part Work will be included with BIBM when installed regardless. You may be able to access it through Settings from the BIBM Desktop, can't recall and would have to re-boot to find out. ;^)
