    Just checked what's available on my MSDN subscription for SQL 2000, 64-bit and have two options: Developer and Enterprise Editions only.
    I can find Standard Edition on my MSDN too, but this appears to only be 32-bit architecture.

    Even though you typed SQL 2000, I suspect that you may have meant SQL 2008. Keep in mind that I am discussing events from 15+ years ago, so my memory may be foggy.

    I don't think that Microsoft ever created an x64 version of SQL 2000. The 64 bit code was Itanium and was only supported in the Developer and Enterprise Editions. I don't remember any 64 bit Standard Edition of SQL 2000.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    It was an Itanium server from about the year 2002 or so.

    Have you tried restoring the file to a 20005/8 instance?

    Note that due to some UI features that were added in service packs, the GUI in SQL 2005 and SQL 2008 has problems restoring a SQL 2000 backup. If you do a RESTORE DATABASE from Transact-SQL you should have better luck.
