bootmgr is missing while boot win7

Last night i installed RHEL5.4 first on my machine.Then i installed windows 7.After finished the installation of win7.The grub list was missing while reboot the machine.So i got into the rescue model with the DVD to fixed grub.After rebooting,the grub list was coming,and there are two systems on it.
BUT when i choosed the 'other' system(which is win7).problem came,and it said "bootmgr is missing" on the screen.

When i installed win7,there is a hide partition about 100M,i don't know what it is.

Here is my /boot/grub/grub.conf:

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,4)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda5
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-164.el5)
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-164.el5.img
title Other
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

HOW TO fix this problem so i can get into WIN7 ???

So you can boot into Red Hat now??

Log in to Red Hat in a terminal and run the command fdisk -l (lower case Letter L) and post the output which is your partition information.
