You will have to purchase a SQL Server 2008R2 license. Version 10.0 is SQL 2008, 10.50 is SQL 2008R2. Do you know if the backup from 10.50 was on standard, enterprise or express edition? To directly answer your question though, you acquire the appropriate license for the edition you need, then simply do an in place upgrade, a named instance install, or can uninstall the old version and do a clean default instance install of the new version.
