Hi,
you planned to restore the Master databases. Then you can use the stored procedure sp_attach_db to attach your databases you created.

This example restores the master database backup from tape without using a permanent (named) backup device.

USE master

GO

RESTORE DATABASE master

    FROM TAPE = '\\.\Tape0'

GO

And then you can use

sp_attach_db [@dbname =] 'dbname',
    [@filename1 =] 'filename_n' [,...16]



For more information see "Restoring the master Database from a Current Backup  "
in BOL.
