Not Solved missing tables causing merge failure

Not Solved
I DID IT! OMG my head is like mush right now but I did it.

OK Here's what I had to do:

Fresh install of Mybb 1.8*
export the OLD UPGRADED database in two stages: EVERYTHING EXCEPT the theme tables
ONLY the attachments and attachtypes (whateveritscalled) tables.

IMPORT the the database minus themes.
Check things. ACP > Tools > rebuild caches and recount and rebuild

UPLOAD via FTP my OLD uploads folder and its contents

IMPORT again the attachments only tables
Check things. ACP > Tools > rebuild & recount attachment thumbs.

Check threads with images. VIOLA! images seem to be there. awesome

NOW I installed automedia. NO PROBLEM and I left the stupid table prefixes the way they were in the forms. Must have been a glitch.

NOW I can install the custom theme I made for 1.8*

so, although this was quite the problematic upgrade I'm glad it happened because I have other boards to upgrade and I really can't have those messed up too!

Thank you for your help expat! It really was helpful because you got me thinking creatively!
