For that u have to change the code of windows that u cant do. So u cant convert a fully windos os guest to para guest.

Para Guest OS awares about the xen hypervisor. for that purpose there code is to be modified. So simply if anyone want

para windows guest then windows should be aware about the xen-hypervisor and its code shuold be modified accordinly.

But it is not opensource so we cant to do anything.

I've been struggling with installing a windows guest OS as
paravirtual because it required to create a local nfs share of the
installation CD and I was unable to figure that out.
I ended up installing the OS as fully virtualized.

I will face the same issue tomorrow as I attempt to install Solaris
10 as guest OS.
Is there a way to convert it to a para?
