extracted from a new Lacie EBD, with seagate branded drives inside (Disk /dev/sdb - 500 GB / 465 GiB - CHS 60801 255 63, sector size=512 - ATA ST3500620AS) although i have also owned an EBD with samsung drives inside which seemed to have the same structure (Disk /dev/sde - 500 GB / 465 GiB - CHS 60801 255 63, sector size=512 - ATA SAMSUNG HD501LJ).

Code:
#1243350225 Disk /dev/sdb - 500 GB / 465 GiB - CHS 60801 255 63
 1 : start=       63, size=  2008062, Id=05, E
 5 : start=      126, size=   256914, Id=82, L
 6 : start=   257103, size=    16002, Id=83, L
 7 : start=   273168, size=    16002, Id=83, L
 8 : start=   289233, size=   256977, Id=83, L
 9 : start=   546273, size=  1461852, Id=83, L
 2 : start=  2008125, size=974759940, Id=83, P


disk 2 does not have a partition table. it is all zeros up until 0x1EB80000, where there is an XFS header and the data (partition 2) from disk 1 continues. the disks are spanned (JBOD), not striped (RAID0).

note XFS Marker at 125/0/1.
D Linux 125 0 1 121602 63 58 1951532032
XFS 6.2+ - bitmap version, 999 GB / 930 GiB
This partition ends after the disk limits. (start=2008125, size=1951532032, end=1953540156, disk end=976773168)
the onboard controller makes the 2 drives appear as 1 large 'big disk'.

here is the MBR for disk 1 (first block)

as mentioned previously the first block for disk 2 is all zeros.

images for the original OS partitions are available here.

hope this information will be helpful for someone, it certainly would have helped me and saved me from buying a new Lacie during my data recovery from a crashed EBD :)
