You should also have said what version of Apache 2.0 and how you got it.
Official binary from ASF?

AFAIK, the Windows binary comes with mod_rewrite as a shared module, so all
you need is to uncomment the LoadModule statement in httpd.conf to enable

Remove the <IfModule> tags, they will just obscure problems.

What is the exact problem when trying to start Apache with those rewrite
rules? Try going to Apache's bin directory in a "command prompt" and then
running "apache -t", which will report any problems with the config. Post
back the *exact* error message if any.
