    If you are talking about SQL database backup then it will work in new server.

    >Which version of Sharepoint should i install on Windows 2008 R2 server

    I would prefer SP 2010 on win 2008 R2 machine. Anyway what SP version is installed in old machine? Also mention that whether you have SP free version Or license one.

    Also make sure that SQL and SP version should be 64bit.

  • Sorry for late reply.

    Your next step is, create a new web application and deattach the content DB from new web application. You need to attach existing CDB to that web app.

    Here is some links for your ref (unfortunately this is for 2010 but it same steps should work in WSS as well)
