I have a problem with one of my sql server express installations. The service doesn't run and gives me the error:
An error occurred while processing the log for database 'master'. If possible, restore from backup. If a backup is not available, it might be necessary to rebuild the log.
I found this site here, which explains how to fix the master db:
But I don't get the second part of the command
start /wait <CD or DVD Drive>\setup.exe /qn INSTANCENAME=SQLExpress REINSTALL=SQL_Engine REBUILDDATABASE=1 SAPWD=<NewStrongPassword> REINSTALLMODE=vomu
1.) Why do I have to use the cd or dvd drive when I extracted the files to my hard drive?
2.) My computer (XP) doesn't understand the command "start /wait"
Can someone help?
