    Why would you want to?

    I would imagine it'd be like any other database....

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    Infact we are moving all our database server stuff to newly purchased hardware..
    i can script all logins and regenerate it in the new server, but i wanted to know the process of restore or detach/attach options for master database to different server..
    thanks for your reply.

    If you retain the server name, then using -m from command line with SQLSERVR would alow you to restore master. MSDB is even easier than that, just restore, after you stop SQLAgent.
