Do you mean it also does not work in other boot managers, not only GRUB?

No, you cannot chainload Windows once you tainted system with native
USB drivers. But the real question is why keyboard does not work. GRUB
is using BIOS services to perform input/output and you say it works in
BIOS setup, correct? It sounds like BIOS stops USB support when it
boots something. Try playing with BIOS setup options, in particular
"Legacy USB Support"; according to documentation if it is disabled,
then "USB devices can be used only for the BIOS setup program".
