Mouse or keyboard does not work when you run the OOBE Wizard in Windows 8

Symptoms

Assume that you install Window 8 on a computer and then start the Out-of-Box-Experience (OOBE) Wizard. Then, you connect a mouse or keyboard that requires special drivers to the computer. In this situation, the mouse or keyboard does not work until the OOBE Wizard has finished running.

Cause

This issue occurs because the Device Install service does not start when the OOBE Wizard is running. Therefore, the installation of Human Interface Device (HID) devices is blocked.
