Booting from USB Issue

Hello everyone,

I'm starting a job from home that requires a boot up from a USB drive. I finally figured out how to boot from the USB (I'm really not very tech savvy) by accessing the UEFI and disabling secure boot. My issue is, my keyboard doesn't work while booted from the USB. It lights up when I press keys, but I cannot type in a password. When I go back to just a normal windows boot, it says something about bitlocker and I have to type in a key. Any way to get my keyboard to be able to type in this USB boot? Would a USB keyboard possibly fix this issue? Thank you in advance!

*Update: USB keyboard does work, but I would still like to know if there's any way to get the surface keyboard working.
