I am running Win 8 installed with en-US. I have a French Keyboard on my laptop.
If I refresh, change boot order with bitlocker or try to do safe boot then the system assumes a US keyboard. Once Windows starts all is OK.
The issue is that I have to remember the difference between AZERTY and QWERTY
On a US keyboard numbers are "1234567890" in French it is "&é"'(-è_çà "if you do not press shift.
This is a bit annoying if you have to put in your password or bitlocker key. Note that once log-on screen is reached the keyboard is correct (French for me)
My system language is en-US. Keyboard layout is French, Display Language is English (United Kingdom).
My question is when does the keyboard layout get loaded. Is it possible to change it so in safe mode/Bitlocker recovery the correct keyboard layout is used?
