My 2.5 year old Apple wireless keyboard was just replaced under Applecare.  I quickly paired it with my 2010 iMac running the latest Lion OS and was off and running.  When I tried to pair it for my Bootcamp partition running Windows XP pro, it failed.  It generates a passcode and asks me to input it but there is no place to type in the corresponding numbers.  Sometimes it says no passcode and sometimes it says passcode enabled and connected, but it is not.  When I go back to check, only my wireless mouse is paired and I have to discover the new keyboard again.  I have tried each of the passcode and no passcode options with the same frustrating results.



iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iPhone
