I believe all you need is an adaptor
StarTech GC46FM Adapter - Newegg.com
Although it's red on the board for some reason and not green or purple ?
I believe you can use either a mouse or keyboard with it.

I wouldn't rely too much on those adapters.

Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

Sometimes they will work for one purpose, but not for others. Maybe you could type a letter to grandma with one, but not necessarily transmit the right signals to a motherboard during a Windows installation.

They are a crap shoot. Maybe good luck, maybe not.

Know what you will do if they fail.

I don't believe it matters the mouse is all you need in an install,
You can skip entering the activation code step and activate later when you get to the desktop where all usb's will work.
Thankfully 7 comes on a install cd
So does 8 or 8.1

But if you buy 10 and don't like it you're pretty much stuck with it
10 is a free upgrade for another 8.. months

Yeah, that's what I'd do--cheap PS2 mouse and keyboard---unless you want to use one of the workarounds. You can get a new mouse for 7 dollars and probably find a used PS2 keyboard at a Goodwill store for 3 dollars.

I'll probably be faced with the same issue when I rebuild. All I've done so far is lots of research and that's where I discovered the workarounds.

MSI probably has a workaround published on their website and you might be able to find videos on youtube.
