I have the following problem. I friend has an Sql server 6.5 and the computer crashed. I installed a new server I want to restore his server but he has the master.dat, msdb.dat, msdblog.dat, msdtc.log files copied from the operating system. I tried to start the server pointing to this files that exist in another folder but I receive an error (Error 1620, Severity 21, State:1 Failure to open master db. for the first time).
I am looking for an advice regarding the posibilities that I have to restore this files.
