Hello Jonas,

You can flow these steps:

Install the same version of mysql.
Remove mysql directory from data directory of the server and copy it from the crashed server. This is the key element.
Copy directory of database you want to recover into data directory of new server.
Start mysql.
Switch to mysql database: USE mysql; and run REPAIR TABLE <table name> on every table.
Do the same with database you want to recover.
