DOS is too long ago, at least for me ...
I'm assuming you live in the US and you're using a QWERTY keyboard.
Try to type the following two commands in the command prompt:

Code: Select all

mode con codepage select=437
keyb us, ,c:\dos\keyboard.sys
Not sure if you have to change the path of keyboard.sys because you booted from USB. However if that works out you may add these two lines to autoexec.bat as default settings.
