Can VMware has “own” mouse and keyboard?

This is the first point to start.

 VMWare tech support tells to add the following line to the Workstation VMX file:

vmmouse.present = "FALSE"

It seems that the VMware bios doesn`t have support for USB keyboards – the keyboard isn`t useable on early boot. maybe you can add support for HID keyboard in the VMware bios?

some information on that:
