I am trying to install a new SQL server 2008 R2 (64 Bit). I need to move a small database from the old SQL Server Express 2005 (32 bit).

Making a backup of 2005 and trying to restore to 2008 R2 did not work.

I detached the SQL 2005 .mdf and the .ldf, copied to new server and tried to attach. I was using the management console to attach the database as I do not know the command line syntax. The current error is

"Could not continue scan with NOLOCK Due to Data movement. Converting Database "GMF" from version 622 to 661. Database "GMF " running the upgrade step from 662 to 25.(Microsoft SQL server 601)



Any suggestion on how to move this database would really be appreciated.



Thanks,

pat

I resolved the problem by removing the LOG file from the directory. I then had to remove the Log file from DATABASE DETAILS. After this the database attached successfully.
