    You should find a directory "keystore" under ~/.ethereum/,
    copy that file ( that's your encrypted private key of the your eth account)
    and paste it to the new OS created ~/.ethereum/keystore.

    then set it as the etherbase in the new installed geth with same
    key address, use your passphere to unlock the account.

    Thanks. Is it supposed to download only one block at a time?

    thats actually an incorrect solution, keystore is your accounts, not the blockchain. However if youre to the point of syncing one block at a time you should be golden
