After some maintenance done on the did not start.
The server is restored from the backup, but there is no database backup.
The database files are recovered from the "old" drive and placed where they belong, but
The master database log file restored is 0 bytes in size.
The instance is getting the error 38 on the startup....

Is there any way to start this instance with "corrupted"/missing mastlog file?

There are no database backups there...thus, do
not propose to restore from the backup :(

Thank you
