That nothing happens is very unlikely.
I assume your initdb fails with signal 12
like
creating configuration files... ok
creating template1 database in /var/postgresql/data/base/1... Signal 12

initdb: failed

This tells you that IPC couldn't be initialized, most likely that 
cygserver is not running or your /etc/cygserver.conf settings are too small.
