  1. You could try creating two partitions, NTFS for your Windows PC, and HFS for your Mac.

    Gparted may be able to do this for you:

    I'd select an MSDOS partition table rather than GPT.

    Use your Mac to format the HFS/HFS+ volume, and use Windows to format the NTFS volume.

    The HFS/HFS+ volume will be invisible to your Windows box, and the NTFS file system will be read-only on your Mac.
