I have 2 questions related to volume attachments to a compute instance:

Q1: What status(state) an instance has to be in when one attempts to attach a volume to it? Q2: What status(state) a volume has to be in before it can be attached to an instance?

The Instance should be running, you just attached the volume to the instance from the volume menu. Next because its RAW you must first put a partition and file system on it, then mount it (via the instance OS) to a mount point on the VM/Instance. Doing a df -k it should show up now.
