Please allow me a few cycles to deploy a lab environment and test this for you.  Staging AKS with windows nodepools requires a little extra effort but let me try the deployment and provide feedback.

After testing this in my lab I discovered we do not support deploying a defender to AKS with windows nodes.  The defender pod will fail and stay in a container creating status.  To deploy a defender to a AKS cluster with windows nodes currently you will need to deploy as a Single Defender, Chose the defender type as Host - Defender Windows, RDP into the windows node and run the install script.  Azure offers a bastion server option to assist with accessing the node.
