Hi, please use <tab> 3 times and use <enter> to make the next work. The keyboard would work even if no mouse.

After the setup the computer should recognize your mouse

Below List of keyboard shortcuts on a Windows operating system which should help you out to install Windows using keyboard keys.

Move to the next field on a page -> Tab
Return to the previous field on a page -> Shift+Tab
Close the installation wizard-> Alt+F4
Move to the next configuration step -> Alt+N
Return to the previous configuration step -> Alt+B
Move to the next selection in a list -> Down arrow
Move to the previous selection in a list -> Up arrow

You can also use Mouse keys Left Alt + Left Shift + Num Lock.

The problem i was facing was to check the terms and condition agreement.
Firstly, I used tab button to select
Then i used to ' + ' to check mark
After that enter.
Hopefully it will work on all devices
