Unable to create selection list

When trying to restore a master database using the below instructions:
I immediately get the error "Unable to create selection list". If i select more databases to be restored then i do not get this error.
Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure why this would happen, but maybe I can offer an alternative.
Backup Exec may have created a master$4idr and mastlog$4idr file. You could just restore your master database by stopping your SQL instance and renaming those files to master.mdf and mastlog.ldf (replacing the old database files). The $4idr files are copies of your master database files created by Backup Exec at the time of the last master database backup.

I know it's no answer to your question, but thought it may be a valid alternative.
