JSI Tip 9324. When you start Windows XP in Safe Mode, your Bluetooth mouse does NOT respond?

When you start Windows XP in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 on the boot menu screen, your Bluetooth mouse does NOT respond.

This behavior may occur if you are using an earlier Bluetooth mouse, like Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth, or Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop for Bluetooth, AND your computer's BIOS does NOT support earlier Bluetooth devices, AND Windows XP cannot start the Bluetooth device driver in Safe Mode.

The only workaround for this behavior is to connect a USB or PS/2 device before you start Windows XP in Safe Mode.
