you can get a good install of windows but if you miss a critical step it won't boot, the boot partition has to be initialized and made active
this usually happens when you partition and format from within disk management with the drive slaved to another install?
If I am trying to clean up a system partition I delete it from windows setup before formating, this will make it active
so far it has not borked the data partition at all, this would have killed it with fdisk
No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
