CentOS 7 has inherited an old bug/bad design choice by parted
developers, where they decided to use the partition type GUID for
"basic data" that Microsoft came up with, rather than following the
UEFI spec and creating their own partition type GUID for Linux
filesystems. Presumably partition 3 is Windows on NTFS, and partition
6 is a conventional partition with combined /boot / and /home. Just a

It's not a bad idea to get gdisk on the system, and change the type
code for the linux partition to gdisk code 8300, which translates to
partition type GUID 0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4. Windows 10
will ignore this, where at least Windows 8 and older invited the user
to format anything with the "basic data" GUID that had a file system
it didn't recognize.
