Can you check BIOS settings for EHCI handover?
If the BIOS does not have handover enabled, it may disable legacy
support after a timeout, which is often bad. IMO this is the same
with booting off USB drives but every BIOS handles that different.

That sound strange. I have no idea why that might work (or I'm

Yes, sounds like or it's probably easily explainable ;)
