I've never run into this on Windows, but I have had a similar situation in Linux before. Before the server died, I copied /var/share/mysql (location where databases are stored on my machine) to /home/tyler/mysql.

After I re-installed MySQL to /usr/local/mysql, I copied /home/tyler/mysql to /usr/local/mysql/lib/

Something similar should work for you. Just copy your old files into the new "lib" directory of your mysql installation. I'm not 100% on this, but this is how I've done it in the past.
