I'm restoring to an alternate server in a DR drill and have restored master but can't restart the instance, even with /f and /m switches. The log is indicating tempdb can't be created, probably looking for the paths from the source instance. How can I determine which path it's trying to create tempdb's DB files in?

I was able to restore the master backup under an alternate name on a different instance so I can browse the system tables. Is there a spot where I can look for them?

I have to go with the assumption that access to the source server is lost so I can only rely on the backups to determine the correct configuration.
