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

So far no number of firmware, BIOS, driver, Megaraid Manager updates and communications with LSI customer support can make LSI 9212-4i4e Host Bus Adapter capable of creating arrays from the disks inside my newly built Norco box.

I've been asked by LSI customer support to try creating arrays in direct-connect environment. Using HighPoint external Mini-SAS to 4 eSATA cable, I connected two 1-disk eSATA boxes to LSI 9212-4i4e host bus adapter, and was able to create RAID1 array from those 2 disks in no time.

Which means that today  9212-4i4e  adapter (unlike 9280-8e  controller) is not compatible with Chenbro AC UEK2-13601  Expander Board (at least in Windows XP environment).
