i know that the cd rom will only go to the hidden xp install.
Yes, the bootable restore CD that came with the computer will access the hidden restore partition. It then formats and re-installs the OS to it's original state from the hidden partition.

Restore the system then run a up to date virus scanner to make sure a virus didn't hide itself on your hidden partition. Make sure you get all the security updates for your system also.
