I have a database that was mirrored and the principal needed to be moved to a new server, we detached the the database after stopping the mirror and moved the data and log files to new server. restarting the mirror fails, so me changed the state of the partner to recovery and wanted to restore a log backup. I need to set the state to no recovery on the partner so I can restore the logs is there a way to change the state to no-recovery to allow me to restore the log and restart the mirror?

no you can't alter the database to no recovery mode
take a full backup followed with transaction log backup and restore it on mirrored server in no recovery mode
and configure log shipping

Actually you can switch database into recovering state by taking tail log backup with norecovery option (BACKUP LOG AdventureWorks TO DISK = 'C:\AW.bak' WITH NORECOVERY).

However, you cannot use this method to restore mirroring since log chain is broken by additionall backup taken to switch database into recovering state.
