I heard back from LSI customer support. I've been told that there is a compatibility issue of LSI 9212-4i4e Host Bus Adapter with my Chenbro enclosure and at this point there is no information on whether an attempt will be made to support it. I've been advised to use either a different enclosure or a different controller board. Luckily I have LSI 9280-8e on another computer ...

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).

I moved the box to another computer which has 9280-8e controller for now.

There were no free external outputs on the controller card, so I connected this box to the external  Chenbro expander output of my old 4220 box (daisy connection). Everything works fine now -- I was able to create a RAID1 array with no problems at all.

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.

My Norco 4220 boxes are attached to Windows 7 computer, and I did not have to install any Chenbro drivers there to make the boxes work. As a result I missed this part when setting up 4224 on Windows XP computer. Megaraid Manager was not able to see any disks inserted into 4224 box at all, although Windows disk manager saw them with no problems.

To download Chenbro expander driver for Windows XP I used the top link among the drivers on this list:

http://www.chenbro.com/corporatesite/service_download_result.php?type=pro&mk=123&sk=

The driver is old, not signed and to install it I had to select driver  location and specify that the device belongs to "System devices" category.

After the driver has been properly installed, Megaraid Manager is able to see disks in Norco 4224 box, but I am not able to create arrays yet (getting 4004 error). It appears that firmware, BIOS, drivers etc for LSI 9212-4i4e controller which I bought only a bit over a month ago have to be updated.

Exchanging emails with LSI customer support.

I plugged the power supply into a UPC unit and turned on power on the power supply. The top images shows one green light which came up. At this point I pressed "on" button on the front of the norco chassis. The bottom image shows the lights on. Now it is time to unplug the power supply again. The wall on fans will be put back in place as the next step.
