The problem with launching windows image with openstack can be solved if you install the VirtIO drives properly.

While Using the virtual machine manager (GUI) from the host to launch windows image, note that you have properly installed Redhat SCSI controller and Redhat ethernet adapter.

I faced similar issues and it is solved when I installed both while installation.(Can be done after installation also). After that try to upload windows.img (say) to glance. It will be saved in /var/lib/libvirt/images by default.

From Dashboard you can easily launch windows image by selecting raw as disk format.
