Cannot mount stores on 2007 Exchange Server

I just installed Exchange 2007 Server onto a new Windows 2008 transitioning off of an old Exchange 2003 server.  The log files reached capacity on the drive and I had not yet been able to do a backup of the new server.  To make matters worse, one of my assistant admins deleted a good chunk of the log files and rebooted because he thought it would free up space and remount.  Unfortunately he was wrong.  I now can not get my four databases under the First Storage Group to remount.  The old Exchange server was already decomissioned earlier today so that really isn't an option for me.

I moved the remaining log files to another folder and then restarted the information store.  Two databases came back up but the two others did not.  Of course, the most important database was one of the two that did not mount.  I am now getting this error message and I am researching it a bit more:

hr=0x80004005, ec= -550

Please let me know if there is anything additionally that can be done.
well,

try to run eseutil /mh <databasename>.edb and see which log it required...
usually the database should in a dirty shutdown stages..

Thank you for pointing me in the direction of that article.  It helped get my first two databases online.  I was hesitant on using eseutil as it had unfortunate consequences for me in the past but fortunately this time it did not.  I had nearly no loss of data.
