I think the problem is the partition type of the extended partition. I guess
you create a extended partition with type 5 (Extended) or 85 (Linux
extended). But for Windows, you should create a extended partition with type
f (Win95 Extended LBA).
Change your sda2 partition type to f. (I guess sda2 is your extended
partition) And re-created sda5, then re-format sda5 with vfat may helps you
solve this problem.
