For troubleshooting and emergency booting where BT may not
work, a wired USB keyboard is recommended, as spare/backup.
A windows keyboard can be OK to use, if you don't have one
and end up borrowing one from a neighbor, see link to compare.
If you are familiar with windows or also use BootCamp, there
is an article about keyboard use and mapping those k/b here:
•BootCamp: About keyboards and key assignment for MS Windows
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5636
I've almost always had at least one extra, new or spare keyboard.
Good luck!
