Perform a full backup of the existing database. Then create a new empty database on the new server and perform a Recovery with OVERWRITE on the new database using the old .bak file. I do this all the time.

(If it's Restore we have done exactly that: we backup from sql0000, create that DB in swl2014 then restore with overwrite and still same problem)

What problem? Can you please share your error message/screenshots, etc?

Please note that SQL 2000 to SQL 2014 is not a direct upgrade:
1. You need to first restore the SQL 2000 database on SQL Server 2008
2. Change the compatibility level of the database to 100
3. Take a backup of this SQL 2008 database
4. Restore on a SQL 2014 instance

Once the restore is complete, you can then make the necessary T-SQL changes to support SQL 2014 and finally update statistics on all the tables.
