My cable keyboard works fine on my PC. I cant test the bluetooth keyboard i'm using now because the buggers in our school tech support made the bluetooth in our laptops unusable without a lot of hard work.

Bluetooth sticks are expensive here in the land of Aus, and its a school computer so i cant really go around reinstalling the OS randomly.

boot a live cd rom or usb stick without installation ? get a replacement hard drive and install your os on it instead ? (to restore just swap the drives back)

No it can't, and they took it out because they are a bunch of *********.

keyboard cant work over wifi but its just a keyboard mesh chat and file sharing can be done perfectly over wifi and are you sure they really took out the wifi card and not just disabled it in software / bios ?

It will work for the most part, but as others have said some of the buttons are different. The Control, Window and Alt keys are replaced by Control, Option and Command.

No, it will cause a division by zero and the world may implode. Nah, just kidding- it should be possible, but I can't say yes for 100% sure. Apparently Ctrl and Alt are reversed on mac keyboards, so beware of that.
