Doesn't look like ISA or a bridgeboard.  Definatately a controller on
some sort of interface bus (possibly an ISA variant... from the pics it
doesn't quite look like ISA).

Probably requires a diagnostic disk or something that would have the low
level formatter on it.... either that, or if the system has some sort of
boot rom, maybe they have diags/utilities in the ROM that requires some
means to access it.
