I partition my hard drives like a man...with a refrigerator magnet! I have to be careful, though, because I'm only allowed so many "1s" per month...
OK, Kayla, I give up - no idea why you're being fought with on this. I've partitioned a drive for my daughter to share between WinXP and Mac by doing exactly what I just described. I did do the initial partition setup under Linux, though, but it should be exactly the same result as what you did...partitioned the drive, and then formatted each new partition under its native operating system (Mac for HFS, WinXP for ExFAT).
One thing I did find on WinXP - if I did a "full" ExFAT format, it'd fail. If I did a "quick" format, it'd work. I'm paranoid enough that I want to do a full surface scan on a new hard drive, so I'd run a complete surface scan under Linux (hence why I did the partitioning under Linux...), and then once it passed, partitioned it, and formatted as HFS and ExFAT under the corresponding native environment.
Oh, well...you have more than enough space to do whatever you want, I'd think!
