SharePoint 2000 Installation and restore from 32 bit version

Can someone please help me.  Attached is a file of the errors that I am getting on the sharepoint installation.  What happened right after the installation of the 2008 R2 server and SharePoint 2010 the server was renamed.  When it was realized this was a bad idea it was named back to the original name.  

Now it is confused.  I need this server up and running today.  Then I need to do a restore from a backup that was made on this server before it was wiped.  It was done with the Management tool from version 13.  There was also a backup done with Backup Exec.  I am over my head and I need help.  

Thank you

Will it make the restore of the database any easier if I rename the server to the same name as the original 32 bit server?  

Obviously I have missed the deadline but I still need the server and want everything to go smoothly so it can be done quickly.

Thank you for your help.

Well I got the first part finally completed.  I listened to a video that said it was best not to install in singler server mode. I didn't realize that I needed to join it to the domain.  Once I made the box a domain controller it worked great.  

I have read the upgrade and migration info that I found.  I'm still confused.  

I have a backups of my databases.  

1.  SQL backup

2.  Symantec Backup

3.  Sharepoint backup

I need to wipe the 32 bit environment in order to create the 64Bit envirnment.  I was under a time restriction and could not find any information on the restore except that it could be done.  

I did all of these backups in thinking they were no different than a SQL restore.  I wiped the server reformated in 64 bit mode.  Install 2008R2 standard, SQL 2008 and Sharepoint server 2010.  

If I understand what I have read I need to restore the SQL databases first?  Is that right.  I tried restoring the SQL and I got errors about it being a different version.  I don't understand we do backups and restores of SQL all of the time in our office and it never is a problem.  Can some one help me with the Single mode?

I have missed the deadline and I need to get this completed ASAP.  Can someone please help?

Thank you,

The restore was pretty complicated, I called Microsoft.  

I probably did not need to wipe and reload the system the first time but practice makes perfect.  We need to get the ldf and mdf files from the backup restore in SQL and then use the configuration manager command prompt to restore in SharePoint.  

Thank you, Amitkulshrestha:

Wiping and reloading the system is always a good idea when it does not seem to execute properly.  But it is not the whole answer some points on loading Sharepoint would have been helpful.  Hyperlinks are always good to.  I feel it was not enough information.
