Maybe connect a USB keyboard to your mac.
If you recall when you installed windows you had to install appropriate drivers to run your keyboard, speakers, trackpad...etc.. When you boot into safe mode on Windows, it only loads the necessary WINDOWS drivers, thus not running your keyboard and trackpad drivers, thus resulting in them not working.
All right! I found a solution ^_^!
I reformatted again after some driver issues occured outside of Safe Mode.
I got out my Logitech SetPoint CD (good thing I bought that new mouse a few days ago), installed it in Windows (knowing that at least my Mouse would be recognized), and waited to see what Safe Mode would do.
It recognized EVERYTHING. TrackPad, internal keyboard, and the [new laser] mouse.
This solution may not work for everyone else, but it worked for me. So funny sometimes how things can just fall together and aid in solving unexpected problems.
If anyone else is having this problem, I recommend purchasing a Logitech device (i.e. mouse, keyboard, etc.). They should be bundled with an installation CD (please check for it). Even if you don't need the device, it may really come in handy. Others may have other [perhaps least expensive] means of getting the software, and I'll leave that up to them.
This mouse is the first thing I've ever purchased from Logitech, and I think it's turned me into a loyal user of their products!
Thanks all for your help!
