You can also reset the calculator to use a single pack and it will tell you how big a starter to make.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding the calculator on MrMalty? According to yeast viability determines the number of smackpacks or vials needed for the required size for the starter?
These are the instructions I followed:

I'll continue using nutrient because it's cheap, easy insurance.
So, IMO, pre-boil HSA is not a concern - YMMV.
