I'd like to use GUID partitioning table on usb/esata disk with first half formatted as HFS+ and the other half formatted as NTFS and readable to both Os X and x32 windows xp.
Is this possible?

So far I have managed to partition first half to GPT and formatted that to HFS+.
Then I connected the drive to xp machine and it saw the first half as protected and the second half as free space.
Then I partitioned and formatted that second half to NTFS in xp.
Now Os X does not see the NTFS partition.

How can I tell Os X to check MBR to find this NTFS partition?
2.0MP, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
