Is it possiable to restore a DB ...

Hi,
I've written a M.plan in my client place which is scheduled to occur
weekly once.But 4 days gone from the last backup taken , there is a
problem in the server which does not start loading windows .The only
way is entering via SAFE-MODE.In the safe mode the E.Manage does not
connected(is it due to safe-mode).
They told they going to format the system . Since the E.M is not
connected, I just copied only my DB(.mdf) and the log file(.ldf).After
that i come accross that all the system databases should be backed up
along with the User DB then only possible for Restoration.

My request is

Is it not possiable to restore my copied DB(.MDF) (not backed up)
After reinstallation of Sql server.

With Heartfull thanks

I saw something already written in this newgroup today that may help.

Subject: attach db file copied previously

Comand: sp_attach_single_file_db

If possible you want to backup all the system DBs, especially the MSDB or
you risk losing jobs, etc.

So, if you can grab copies of the MDF and LDF of that to, that will help.

If you have the MDF and LDF then sp_attach_db is your best bet. If you have
only the .MDF, you MAY be able to use sp_attach_single_file_db, but
generally that will NOT work unless you used sp_detach_db in the first
place.

However, if you have just the MDF and can't attach it, contact Microsoft
Server Support. They may be able to help you, but your DB is likely to be
in an inconsistent state.

Note: If you're doing full backups only weekly, I highly recommend
differential or transactional backups on a daily basis (or even more often.)

After reinstallation of Sql server.
