SQL Server2008

I have a sql server 2008 with a default instance, I move a configuration management database from a sql server 2005 to the new sql server 2008 and I could connect to the database. the problem is: the collation was different and I was requested to create a new instance on the new 2008 server with the collation of the database. I created the new name instance and move the configuration management database to it and then try to run the configuration program but I could not connect the configuration management database on the new name instance, I received this message: configuration manager R2 sp2 could not connect or execute sql query.
Does anyone knows what could be the problem.

In the SQL Server 2008 is changed the default security policy that disables SQL Server Authentication mode and you need to have membership of Administrators group of server machine in order to connect to SQL Server 2008 via Windows Authentication mode
