Windows behaves fine for me whatever slice it's installed in.

What IS important is that it's installed first, as you said before.
You can choose it to go wherever you like.

By the way, please don't say win to refer to Windows; as RMS has said many times

'[If] you call Windows a "win", you are praising it.  If you don't
want to praise Windows, it's better not to call it a "win".' [1]

If you must abbreviate it, try w32, or leave off MS- and just write Windows
