Cause of DRVERR Fatal Drive Error?

» close window

The Question is:

I am trying to install a 4.3 GB SCSI drive in a Microvax 3100-80 machine and
 get the error "fatal drive error".  This drive came out of a novell server and
 had no issues there so I am operating under the assumption I don't know what I
 am doing!
I need to install this drive and initialize it in VAX....could you please
 provide instructions on how to do this?
Thank you
