Hi,

Currently it's not possible. Do you need that just for convenience or you can't type in some important data (file name for example)?

Thank you

i have a complex password and it will be great to have the correct layout on the keyboard (french)
currently this is working because i found the corresponding keys....

so you are saying there is no way ?
i think it should be possible to inject the keyboard layout in the configuration file in the custom recovery image but not sure where to start....

thanks

Makes sense, noted as a feature request, thank you!

Injecting arbitrary files is not implemented yet. The best what I can offer for now is to use some third-party LiveCD that has French layout in place, install VAL there, and activate Recovery UI - please proceed to support to get instructions.

Thank you
