Norco RPC-4224 Build -- LSI 9212-4i4e Host Bus Adapter

LSI 9212-4i4e host bus adapter support and downloads page is a mess. The firmware section contains two firmware install packages for Windows and I've wasted some time trying to choose between them and upgrade the firmware and BIOS to version 07.00.00, which, accordingly to the customer support, I need. BIOS could be easily updated. Accordingly to LSI customer support there is no way to update 9212-4i4e controller firmware from Windows.

A good thing is that LSI customer support is very responsive, I got an advice that I need to boot to native DOS and run the DOS version of sas2flash utility. OS specific versions of this utility are there for monitoring purposes only (and to confuse users like me, I guess). I was confused because I had no problems upgrading the firmware on my other LSI controller -- 9280-8e from Windows.
