asus system recovery tool for desktops

Since I couldn't find anything on Google about this, maybe they'll pick up this entry...

We got a new computer tonight: a nicely-equipped Asus CM6850-07. One of the first things it suggests is to create a set of recovery DVDs. This sounded reasonable, so I followed the directions to insert a DVD-R and reboot.

When it did boot into the "Asus System Recovery Tool", though, it wouldn't respond to any input!

It took me a long while to realize that the keyboard and mouse had to be plugged into the topmost USB ports on the back (where the old mini-DIN keyboard/mouse connectors used to live).

Anyway. Live and learn.
