2D byte array to grayscale texture problems.

I am trying to store a 256x256x256 group of voxels as a 2D picture (only need 1 byte, there won't be more than 256 types of voxels). So to also try and debug (and save the voxel patch out I figured I can just store it as a grayscale png file).

Dim2x and Dim2y are just constants which equate to 4096

The for loop before I create the texture is to just go ahead and color part of the image a different shade, that way I'd know if it were showing up, but as of right now it doesn't.

This is what I am trying to do to create the texture:

public Patch()
            this.patchVals = new byte[Dim2x, Dim2y];
            for(int i = 0; i < 4096; i++)
                for (int j = 0; j < 1000; j++)
                    patchVals[i, j] = 128;
            this.patch2D = GL.GenTexture();
            GL.BindTexture(TextureTarget.Texture2D, patch2D);
            GL.TexParameter(TextureTarget.Texture2D, TextureParameterName.TextureMagFilter, (int)All.Linear);
            GL.TexParameter(TextureTarget.Texture2D, TextureParameterName.TextureMinFilter, (int)All.Linear);
            GL.TexImage2D(TextureTarget.Texture2D, 0, PixelInternalFormat.CompressedIntensity, Dim2x, Dim2y, 0, PixelFormat.Alpha, PixelType.Byte, patchVals);

And then to try and render it as a fullscreen quad:

 public void Draw2D(int width, int height)
            //render code here
            GL.BindTexture(TextureTarget.Texture2D, patch2D);
            GL.Ortho(0, width, height, 0, -1, 1);
            GL.TexCoord2(0f, 0f); GL.Vertex2(0, 0);
            GL.TexCoord2(1f, 0f); GL.Vertex2(width, 0);
            GL.TexCoord2(1f, 1f); GL.Vertex2(width, height);
            GL.TexCoord2(0f, 1f); GL.Vertex2(0, height);
