You most likely need to upgrade the SQL express database before migrating it. Here is an article on how to upgrade.

thanks donna for help, but the real problem isn't the upgrade because I have Sql standar already installed, the case is that the CRM don,t validate the instances name of sql server that is in other virtual server and display the error that i have writen adove, and for this reason ican see the reports on CRM reports site too. any idea?

I thought maybe the root of the problem was due to trying to migrate a SQL Express database to a SQL Standard instance rather than going through an upgrade process. If not, then I am not sure I understand your environment enough to help. I apologize for any inconvenience.
