SQL Server 2008 R2 won't start

I put Service Pack 1 on SQL Server 2008 R2 and now I cannot start up SQL Server localhost.  The error I am getting is:

Cannot use file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\mastlog.ldf' because it was originally formatted with sector size 4096 and is now on a volume with sector size 3072. Move the file to a volume with a sector size that is the same as or smaller than the original sector size.

I don't care about the existing mdf and ldf since I have a backup.  What do I need to do so I can start up SQL Server localhost?
