SQL server can't find the log file. Have you double checked that it's in the path mentioned above?

If you're restoring from the GUI you can change the path to the log file in the bottom half of the attach dialogue. or just change the path in your create database statement.

CREATE DATABASE AdventureWorks2012 ON (FILENAME = 'M:\Data\AdventureWorks2012_Data.mdf'), 
(FILENAME = 'L:\Tlogs\AdventureWorks2012_Log.ldf') FOR ATTACH;

The database is looking for the log file in the directory specified in the mdf file, not where you placed it.

T-SQL

USE [master]
GO
CREATE DATABASE [AdventureWorks2012] ON
( FILENAME = N'<Enter path to the mdf file here>\AdventureWorks2012_Data.mdf' )
FOR ATTACH
GO



This will create a new ldf file in the default log file directory.


Management Studio

In the Attach Databases dialog box:
Click the Add button and browse to the mdf file
Click on the row that specifies the log file
Click the Remove button
Click OK

When using the GUI for attaching a database, select the MDF file in the upper part, then delete the log file in the below part (the database details).
