That doesn't make it a BIOS problem.  It means that you have found a 
workaround that works for you that involves turning off the BIOS support.

Compile  uhci, hid, evdev & psmouse as modules, and load them in that order 
in /etc/modules, and you should be able to use either the USB or touchpad 
mice _and_ hotplug.  

A solution that involves "no hotplug" would be useless for me.  I've got 6 
hotpluggable devices that _must_ be hotplugged, because I don't have enough 
power to turn them on when I'm not using them.
