First what Windows are you using to create that Cluster?

Important: Controllers
Windows Server 2003 SP1 and SP2: LSI Logic Parallel
Windows Server 2008 SP2 and above: LSI Logic SAS

For the first node:

Expand the New Hard Disk From the Virtual Device Node drop-down menu, select a new SCSI controller (for example, SCSI (1:0)).
NOTE: You must select a new virtual device node. You cannot use SCSI 0.

Second node:

Click the New device drop-down menu, select Existing Hard Disk, and click Add.
3   In Disk File Path, browse to the location of the quorum disk specified for the first node.
4   Select Physical as the compatibility mode and click Next.
5   Select the same virtual device node you chose for the first virtual machine’s shared storage disks (for example, SCSI (1:0)), and click OK.
NOTE: The location of the virtual device node for this virtual machine’s shared storage must match the corresponding virtual device node for the first virtual machine.
