USB Keyboard not recognized in BIOS at Start Up

I'm running Windows XP on an Advantech single board computer. The system has
a ps/2 mouse and keyboard. The system will recognizes the USB keyboard when
in XP but when I boot the system with the USB keyboard plugged in and the
ps/2 keyboard disconnected, I get "keyboard error or no keyboard found"
during the bios portion of the boot. How can this be fixed so I can use only
a USB keyboard and not get this error during boot up. I'm assuming there is
a BIOS setting but am not familar enough to make the change. Thanks in
advance.

Look in the BIOS for an option to "Enable Legacy USB Support." If in
doubt, read the manual that came with the computer, or check the
manufacturer's web site for instructions.
