Can you describe that screw head? Do you know what a torx head looks like? That is a six-pointed slot similar to a four-pointed philips but it's not tapered like a philips screwdriver.
Look very closely at the studs right where they come through the rotor. If you see a bunch of serrations near the base of each one, the rotor and hub are held together by them. For that style you must pop off the bearing cap and axle nut, slide the hub and rotor off as an assembly, then pound out each stud to separate the two parts. Chrysler rear drums were held on that way for many years. Those studs hold the rotor on so tightly you can mount the whole assembly on a brake lathe and make a nice true cut. Many people have tried pounding that type of drum or rotor off but all they managed to do was bend them. Ford used that style too for a while.
