I loaded up HDDriver from disk, went about partitioning, used 'Split' and selected 4 partitions, on the compatibility I selected TOS (Windows is already checked) and hit Okay to partition.
First time I did it, it seemed to create the partitions, but they were weirdly corrupted. Second time it worked fine. I did it on both of these, installed the HDDIVER.SYS and they boot.
Now I plug them into my Linux box (Arch if that matters) and they show up as having no disklabel in gparted, but fdisk shows an interesting picture.

What's up with that 618gb 'Empty' file system type? Weird, eh?
