Ms Sql Server 2014.
unfortunately, after update my windows 10, there is no log be written!
But after a lot of search, i've see all sql server configurations directory has been changed from 'd:' which i've installed to 'c:'!
hence i've open regedit and replace every key inside this keys from 'c:' to 'd:' :

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\Setup
And
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSSQLSERVER

and now it started correctly, but some services like Agent, SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher, ... was missing in Sql Server Configuration Manager!
