Try downloading and installing drivers for your mouse and keyboard.

Then you're out of luck. If you don't have the right drivers, then the device won't work properly, if at all.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but that's just the way it is, even with PC hardware.

Perhaps you can try another keyboard and mouse?

From what i read online i need the drivers from the mac disc but i no longer have that disc, so im searching for htem online but it proves to be more difficult then i thought it would :/ so if anyone has any input please feel free to share lol

Theres also the virtualbox option. Someone told me that all the hotkeys and right click would work in the virtual enviroment but ive never done it. Can someone confirm this to be true?
