Does windows support these disks ?
Are they bootable ? If so where does the boot code sit ?

In which case what does the MBR partition information look like ?
Especially when there are extended partitions ?

We can't decide you to partition and label these disks until the
answers to the above are known.

Some of the above may be determinable from USB memory sticks
that have 2k sectors.  But windows doesn't like putting multiple
partitions on those.
