You may have to do a double jump . . . eg: restore on a 2008 database an then take another backup.

SQL server 2008 Express limit is 4 GB but SQL server 2008R2 support upto 10 GB.

Yes it would work but database  size limitation.

I do the excercise with sql 2005 express and works,
could be 2005 instead of 2008?
Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
SQL Server has compatibilty to 2 versions backward, so MSSQL 2014 only regconizes databases backups from MSSQL 2008 and MSSQL 2012.
With a MSSQL 2005 you can migrate it to MSSQL 2012.
