Thanks for the response.
No, I don't think I changed the partition type of the "Windows" 
partition to MBR.
Is that possible to change retroactively? What tool?

Can you even change the partition type or are you referring to the 
partition scheme of the entire disk?
Is it possible to change the partition scheme of the disk and not have 
to re-install?
(My understanding is that MacOS can boot from MBR style partitioning but 
might have issues with firmware upgrades)

As I dont have access to the machine right now I will see what I can 
find out about changing the partitioning next week.
