Windows 2008 R2 x64 Can't init new disk

I'm trying to init a newly inserted disk into a windows 2008 R2 64-bit Dell

When I try to init the disk in disk management, I get "Cannot find the file specified"
I have tried through DiskPart as well.

In both cases, I get the following error in system event log:

VDS fails to write boot code on a disk during clean operation. Error code: 80070002@02070008

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance,

- Steve

Standard disk or part of a RAID/SAN/Etc?

You probably first have to use the controller's utility to either add it to an existing array, or create a new RAID array for that new disk.
