Xen is a para-virtualisation system - the virtualised system/os needs
built in a way that is appropriate for virtualising. This means that
you are (currently) unable to use xen for running windows images or even
installing older (non xen aware) versions of Linux.
Not entirely true: with new versions of Xen combined with certain CPUs
(Intels today, AMDs some time this year), you can have full
virtualization. People are running Windows along side Linux.
There's a higher overhead in running that way, so it is preferred to run
with a Xen-aware OS.
Also note: I haven't tried this myself yet.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
