Yes, it works fine on Windows guests.

On RHEL 6 (*only*) you have to install the libguestfs-winsupport
package from RHN.

On Fedora and other distros, Windows guests are supported out of the

  $ virt-inspector -a /dev/vg_pin/WinXP | head
  <?xml version="1.0"?>
       <product_name>Microsoft Windows XP</product_name>

Is there any particular problem you're having?
