Adding existing repository to new subversion + tortoise

I was using subversion with tortoise few months ago. Then, I had to
change the server. Hence, I copied svn/repos directory from the server
as a backup. I don't remember the version of the svn installed on old
server. What is the best way to get the repository working on new

I followed these steps which didn't work,
> I installed svn 1.4.6 because I guess this was the version installed on the old server. I am not sure though.
> I skipped the "svnadmin create" command since I have the repository already.
> Then, I created the service using "sc create svn binpath= "C:\program files\Subversion\bin\svnserve.exe --service -r \"E:\Source Control\svn\repos\"" DisplayName= "Subversion Server" depend= Tcpip start= auto" where "E:\Source Control\svn\repos\" is the old repository.
> Executed "net start svn"
> Installed tortoise 1.6.6.
> Opened TCP Port 3690 through firewall
> And then, using tortoise, tried to checkout "svn:\\localhost\". I got error "expected FS format 2 found 3"

Can any body tell me what did I do wrong?
