RE: Swapping HBA330 with H730P Controllers
If you are using the PERC H330's pass-though option, the PERC H730 supports this too.
So you should be able to turn on the passthrough option for all disks (and SSDs) and then boot ESXi (from the dual SD card I assume), and it should work fine.
Note that you may need to upgrade the firmware on the H730 that you receive, as only recently did VMware certify the LSI/Avago controllers for vSAN 6.2, but only with an updated driver and firmware.
