Move RAIDs from B120i to P410


i have a easy question. A friend use a ML310e GEN8 v2 Server with build-in B120i Smart Array Controller (ver. 4.50) with four non-HPE SATA Drives (2TB, 6GB/s) within two different RAID 1 Volumes. Because of poor I/O Performance with the installed ESXi 6, we are thinking about a Smart Array P410 Controller with a 512 MB BBWC. I know, that this controller isn't officialy support by HPE for the server, but will work anyway.
My question is: Does the P410 recognize AND use the Meta-Informationen on the disks belong to the RAID Informationen from the B120i Controller?
