It seems Master database files are not in place or got corrupt. You don’t need to reinstall whole SQL server indeed use rebuildm to restore master database.
Error 823 If you receive the following error message, it might indicate that Microsoft SQL Server 2000 has detected hardware or system problems when it was reading from or writing to database files:

Hi Deepak, I ran rebuildm but after few minutes of working, it says "Rebuild Master failed with error -1:" Any idea? CanadaDBA
That’s why the best practise is to take the backup of log and data file of master database once in a week.
Thanks Noor

Good guess Luis! Your link is referring to Rebuildm.exe failure when the source directory is a CD. Actually, in my case it is not a CD but it is a mapped drive. I have only C: on my local and I was going to simulate one of the servers. We use E: drive on our servers. I used SUBST E: C:E_Drive to create an E: drive. And it worked but after a some weeks I found the SQL Server cannot start on my local. Thanks,
