You could battern it, use no nails, I'm sure you can get at least a couple of screws and plugs to secure it??

That is because you are most probably trying to drill into the lintel above the opening. Fix a piece of timber to the wall above the window with a strong adhesive. no more nails etc. Paint it to match the room then fix your curtain pole to it.
So put the drill away and get sticking!
