GRUB does support USB HID. But apparently you use outdated version.

It does not appear to work on the motherboard.

Also grub will not support USB HID from a switch... booting from a live OS will solve all such problems.

GRUB has own USB drivers available after loading them manually (insmod uhci/insmod ohci)

The solution to this problem is booting a live OS, running grub on in to set the root device, kernel etc... and booting directly from that OS after shutting it down abruptly (this wont impact if a live CD is used, and grub might show a warning before doing this).
