    Did you stop SQL Server before you shut down the machine? Is the drive with the log file up and available? You might try stopping SQL Server and starting it again. It sounds like SQL Server didn't stop properly.

    Since this is a test DB, I would probably detach the database, delete it, and attach a new copy.
    When you go the extra mile, there's no traffic.
