    diskpart
    select disk 1
    select partition 1
    set id=EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7

    That partition has the attributes of a reserve partition - need to change the attributes to a primary partition (as above)

    Kind of figured that would be the case....
    Because you can not change the ID on a reserve partition....

    You would have to Delete the partition and re-create it...
