Here is what you need to do.

1. Stop MSSQLServer and SQLServerAgent services.
2. From a command prompt, enter this command:

sqlservr.exe -m

"Do not close the command prompt window after executing this command. Now it is enabled for only one connection."

3. Run Enterprise Manager to restore the master database from the backup.
