Am looking for a solution to either getting the old instance back online or a new instance presenting all of the data.
There is a formal upgrade process to migrate from an existing SteelStore AMI appliance to the AltaVault AMI appliance. It is documented in the install guide, chapter 2. Please check out this forum post which has the link to the documentation and goes over that process. You will need to use that process to complete the conversion. I am hoping that the actions you've taken already haven't damaged the original datastore volumes, which will need to be migrated across to the new appliance. Please use the established procedure for migration and let us know how things go.
