I tested with latest Xenial arm64 Mini ISO from http://ports.ubuntu.com
arm64/current/images/netboot/mini.iso (dated 20-Apr-2016) and USB
keyboard was not working.
Is there a more recent arm64 ISO available which I can test?

USB keyboard is not working in Ubuntu Xenial installer for Gigabyte
MP30-AR0 (APM X-Gene 1)
Status in debian-installer package in Ubuntu:
When I start the Ubuntu Xenial Installer, the USB keyboard is not
working. The installer was started from UEFI Shell using the command:
I had to restart the installer using the kernel option
'console=ttyS0,115200' and then use a serial connection.
Expected to happen
Able to use USB keyboard to navigate through installer menus
What actually happened
Computer was not responding to any of the keys entered on the USB keyboard
Gigabyte MP30-AR0 motherboard with APM X-Gene 1 processor flashed with TianoCore UEFI
Kingston KVR16LE11S8/4HB 16 GB ECC DDR3 DRAM
HGST Deskstar NAS 6 TB drive
Logitech USB keyboard
Ubuntu Xenial Mini ISO downloaded from http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/xenial/main/installer-arm64/current/images/netboot/mini.iso (dated 29-Mar-2016)
UBoot has been replaced by TianoCore UEFI using the steps described in: https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2016/03/08/gigabyte-mp30-ar0-flashing-uefi/
USB keyboard was properly working in UEFI before starting the Ubuntu installer
Both Centos 7.2 and Debian Testing were successfully installed on the system and running stable
