ok i downloaded the parrot iso, then used etcher to put it on USB like i’ve always done when using windows to do it.
I’m running it on a PowerSpec 1530 laptop i bought new today for about that number 1530. its a gaming one, nice GPU, I got it for Parrot and Kali.
when i booted it up in live mode from USB the keyboard doesn’t work.
i’m using it now with a wireless keyboard.
i had a si,ilar issue when installing parrot onto a macbook 2018 i think was the model year.
it was a driver issue which took a lot of steps to fix and i finally found it under the same issue happening to Kali on the same machines.
this was over a year ago and is why i had bought this wireless keyboard i’m using now.
I can’t find a solution now, if anyone else knows it please post.
when i figure it out, ill post.
post if u have this issue too, i’ve never heard of it happening to a PC laptop before, only apple.
