Can't re-use my old gamertag

So, I had to start a new xbox live profile a while back, due to some problems with emails getting hacked. Now that I finally have a new profile, ready to use, my old gamertag is already taken. I'm fairly certain it's still linked to my old account, which I can't access now. (It's not the kind of gamertag to be popular, trust me.) Ergo, I can't re-use my old gamertag. Is there any way to fix this?

Sorry, but since it's still on the servers there is no way to get that gamertag.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
