What is the best way to do a clean install of MySQL 5.6 with data from mysql 5.5.46?

My computer (running mysql 5.5.46) just broke down (actualy it started to burn, but that is another story). So I had to buy a new one and decieded to take the chance to upgrade to the newest Ubuntu-Version which comes with MySQL 5.6.

Unfortunatly I failed completly at restoring the old data - i've several backups of the MySQL data-folder and all files from the old PC are undamaged as well. But whenever I try to restore the old ibdata-files the MySQl server just crashes.

So before I try it again: What is the best clean way to do this? How can I restore my old data-folder?
