How can I get USB Mouse and Keyboard to work during Windows 2003 repair install?

Setup is Intel Server Board with RAID 10 and Windows 2k3 Standard install.  I lost one of the 4 drives and it corrupted OS files.  While running a repair I lose functionality of mouse and keyboard after installing devices.  When it comes to the part where it asks if I want to install RAID virtual Device, I have no way of clicking ok and thus am stuck.  I DO NOT have ps/2 on this server unfortunately and am stuck with usb only.  In BIOS I have only 3 settings regarding usb and feel like ive tried every possibility.  Any help would be greatly appreciated and Im taking over this account for first time, so please don't get all over me regarding the setup..haha....

Check the BIOS settings for keyboard and mouse, and see if "PS/2 emulation" can be configured?

Why are you still looking at repairing windows 2003, which has been EOL for over an year? Get an OS that is supported and install that. It is very foolish to keep on using software that isn't getting patches, you risk your whole corporation's data that way. I know this isn't the answer you want to hear, but it is the only sane one.

Sure rindi, that's a great idea...can u assist me in pulling data from a RAID 10 with Windows 2003 OS that cant boot and has no backup, no OS CD's, and no driver installation CD for custom built server?

If I could pull the data without fully booting Id be up for that, but Im not sure of way to do that.  Otherwise, I hear ya on upgrading them and that's exactly what Im trying to do.  Im just trying to play hero and recover this invaluable database after firing last IT company for putting them in this mess

Dr. Klahn- Im not seeing anyting for ps/2 emulation anywhere in BIOS.  Under the USB my options are 1. USB Controller (Enabled/Disabled)
2. Legacy USB Support (Auto,Enabled or Disabled)
3. Port 60/64 Emulation (Enabled/Disabled)
4. Make USB Devices Non-Bootable (Enabled/Disabled)

Boot the PC using a LiveMedia, like PCRepix. You should be able to mount the partitions and copy the data off. Why is there no backup?
