yes it is free, unless you have macos on that same partition then
there are macos bootblocks there.
dd if=/dev/hda4 of=/tmp/hfsblock bs=1024 count=1
dd if=/dev/hda8 of=/tmp/ext2block bs=1024 count=1
$ cmp /tmp/hfsblock /tmp/ext2block
no difference at all.
hda4 is a empty hfs partition with no macos
hda8 is a ext2fs not the root partition and such no boot blocks
installed (quik or otherwise)
