SQL Server 2012 error while attaching database

Good morning,

I get an error trying to attach AdventureWorks database to SQL Server 2012. I first logged in as admin with server control permissions and then I logged in as sa.
Logging as SA tells me that the operating system (Windows 8) is denying me access, although i am trying to log using SQL authentication.

ThanksSQl-Server.jpg
