That would be C:\boost if your goal is to build Boost.
If your goal is to build all the tools, you should use the working
directory Vladimir mentioned.

Also note that --build-type is spelled with a dash in the middle.
Also note that --prefix is meaning-less if you're doing a 'stage' build
of Boost, as it only matters when doing an 'install' build.

A 'stage' build always puts the libraries in the --stagedir location, by
default '.\stage'.
