An interesting situation here.

We have a database server, used for testing only, where someone went in and deleted the administrator login.

Since this is a test server the was no other admin level login on the server.

Is there a way to get access to the server again without reinstalling SQL Server?

We do not need the data in the databases, these are droped and recreated everytime the tests are run.
