... The HDD works and we can see a file system on it 
    when connected to a PC, <snip>

I hope you are aware that most (if not all) versions of Windows 
writer to Cylinder/Head/Sector 0,0,1+xx as part of adding that 
physical drive and its logical partitions to its hardware inventory.
Found that out when reading about working on TiVo HDDs.
This should not be problem for standard (IBM?) partition table drives
that have CHS 0/0/2-63 (LBA 1-62) unused.
