From the command synatx you are running soft recovery command to get you database in clean shutdown state

E0169FF5: it doesnt seem to be your log file prefix

I feel your transaction log prefix will be E01 so the soft recovery command will be

eseutil /r E01 /l "G:\STGR1" /d "G:\MBStore\GRP1"

Murli30 is correct I would say

The DB says log required is 69ff9 --> 66ffa
Sorry, did your closing comment mean that you are going to do /P?

Can you not find the logs required to make the DB mount?
