    I am trying to bring up the first node in the cluster and the analysis goes
    fine, but when the cluster actually installs it cannot bring the Physical
    Disk resource online. The error is ID 1069 but a non-specific so I don't
    have any information on why it won't come online. It is an external 4 disk
    SCSI RAID 10 that is not connected to any other machines yet. I haven't
    found anything on this for non-specific 1069 errors. Any help would be

    Hello Jon,

    Unfortunately, we need more information to determine why the disk isn't
    coming online. Please look in your system event log and see if you are
    getting event ID 9, 11, 50 or 51 errors. These could be (but not
    necessarily) indicative of a storage problem (hardware failure or

    Try to bring the quorum online and immediately after it fails, review the
    cluster log in the %systemroot%\cluster folder. Search from the bottom to
    the top of the log for "Quorum". You should be able to find where we try to
    bring the resource online and it failed. There should be an associated
    error code like "2".

    Doing a "net helpmsg 2" at a command line will tell you why the resource
    failed (just substitute 2 with your error code). We can see a "2" means
    "file not found". If you get this on a physical disk (like the quorum) that
    actually means "disk not found". That is an indication of hardware failure
    or misconfiguration as the cluster service is unable to attach to the quorum
