CRM 4.0 - Error After Reinstallation - Group Does not Exist

OK.....I am actually in the middle of trying that....I couldn't do that originally because the reinstallation used the same deployment name and the one I wanted to import....I am going to go through the installation again using a different deployment name and then try to import the original

Yes,you when you re-install you have to create a new organization - name this anything because  when you've done the import you can delete  it.

Worked perfectly....

Created new deployment as part of CRM Installation
Imported old DB in SQL
Imported Organization and pointed to the old DB (inside deplyment mgr)
Mapped using defaults.

Thanks Feridun!!!!
