Xandros 2 restore help needed

See my previous question (partitions safe?) for more background information. The basics are: I can boot to Windows (98SE); I can't boot to Xandros. I was able to copy files from both partitions to a network drive. I was unable to clear up data on the Xandros partition (needed, I think, for a friendly re-install [keeps old user data]).

Recently, I tried the restore option from the installation CD. It gets to the part about choosing which partition to restore, and locks up. There's only one choice. I am instructed to type the number of the partition (1) or X (to exit) then hit the enter key. The problem is the keyboard becomes unresponsive at this point. Neither 1 nor X shows when I type it, and the enter key has no effect. The screen stays the same for a few minutes, then goes blank. Nothing happens. Eventually, I shut it down (power button). I can get the same results by doing nothing at the choose partition screen.

I have an A907 desknote (with a "gigapro" cpu). According to Belarc Advisor, the keyboard is EnE Keyboard KB-3886. It also lists HID-compliant keyboard.

Any help would be appreciated.
