Try at least initially with a "Bog standard" USB mouse - usually the cheaper the better as it will work from a generic driver
Also ensure the USB hardware is recognized -- if you have any trouble initially then set the BIOS to USB in legacy mode. That should ensure at least USB1 type devices will work.
Don't forget to change it back again afterwards.
Once you've booted up you can then search for the appropriate drivers
