    Boot into RHEL and login as root, run command: fdisk -l (lower case Letter L) and post the partition information you get here.

    Do you get the Grub menu with options for RHEL and windows (or maybe other) when you boot? Do you get the error after selecting windows from the boot menu? What exactly is the error you get trying to boot windows? Did you look at the /boot/grub/menu.lst file? I assume you have an entry for windows?
