And that's enough to lose to make your current Oracle installation useless.

Obviously not, as the DBID for the old dbf files does not match the DBID for the new database you created with the new installation of XE. You need to visit the on-line documentation menu page, found here:

You'll find no instructions to copy an XE database. You should have exported your data on a regular basis so you could replace it should you need to do so. You could *possibly* look in the documentation for 10gR2 and use the instructions there for cloning a database and see if you get usable results.
