    I am not a teacher.

    I think that the first sentence should be without "in":

    Continue this process until you have completely keyed a document to your computer.

    The second is okay, but again, I am not a teacher . Wait for some "professional" advice from teachers on this forum.

    You need to use quotes if you're quoting words.

    Continue this process until you have completely keyed a document in to your computer.

    The first is better since "key in" is being used as a separable phrasal verb. You are 'keying in' the document to the computer.
    If it were not a phrasal verb, you couldn't say:
    Would you key in this document for me?
