Default Going from -current to -current with bsd.rd

Hello people,

I'm trying to move from -current(13th September) to the latest -current using 'bsd.rd'.According to 4.12 part of the FAQ i can put the new bsd.rd file '/' directory and boot it to the next reboot.

so if i do something like this

#cd /
#mv bsd.rd bsd.rd.old
#cp bsd.rd.new /
#mv bsd.rd.new bsd.rd
And on the next reboot i should press

'bsd.rd' and choose update?

Are these the correct steps?

if yes here is the problem :

When booting keyboard is not responding ; even if i try '-c'.Strange thing is that the num lock led is on.Also i noticed that i can't enter bios.The keyboard is also not responding.

They might be different issues but i'm writting both because they might be related.
