I started anew just a few months ago.
As far as I remember you just need the .lrcat file (this is 500MB for my collection) and your images in the same file-structure and location to have everything.
Unfortunately I cannot guaranty this :roll:
Couldn't you just try it with a second computer before you wipe anything important?

If you can make an exact copy of the Lightroom folder and of the folders where your pictures are stored then it should work. You must make sure that all the files go into the exact same locations as they were in your old installation. I did this when I use to reformat every half a year or so and no problems.

If you plan to put the images or catalogue in a different location on your HD then you may need another method.
