Recovering SQL 2008 database from mdf and ldf files.

I have reviewed many previous questions raised here that seem quite similar to my circumstance, and that has led me to make several attempts to solve my issue, but each attempt produces an error.

Using what seems to be the most commonly recommended action...

When using Attach (right click on Databases within SQL Management studio) to attach my existing mdf and ldf files, I get an error (see attached). This suggest performing DBCC CHECKDB.
However - don't I have to have the database attached in order to run that process?

Thanks in advance for any assistance
