I have recevied call from user side, they want change server side collation name in development server. I had done, after that database every thing removed from instance and fresh instance installed by the command.

but i took backup, login before run that command, it was safe me these backup and login script.

Does these command behaviour fresh instance will be installed with SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS? once changed sever side collation.

rebuilding the database creates a fresh master, and would not retain the links to teh databases that were there previously.

fortunately for you, the MDF/LDF's will still be in place onthe drives, so you just have to attach them; browse for the mdf files and attatch them one by one.
also, note that all your logins , any linked servers, and any users/roles that used to live in master would be gone and you need to recreate them.

also, changing the collation of the master database does not auto-magically change the collation for databases, or the collation of each varchar/char/nvarchar/nchar/text colaltion in any of those databases;
those have to be fixed individually.
