I'm not familliar with the tool you used to test the drive, but I can tell
what the output means. The disk is reporting that it is uninitialized. If
this is not true (eg, you did properly install and format the drive), there
maybe a flaw in the RAID controller, or it may be simply a bad drive itself.
You should be able to format the drive outside of the array to test it.
