Did you somehow change the flag of your fat32-partition during
repartitioning? Linux doesn't care if it's flagged as "lba" or something
else, but windoze won't recognize the partition at all if the flag states
the wrong hdd translation type.

I had that problem when windoze once killed the partition table of on of
my hard discs and I chose the wrong flag while recreating it in linux.
