The Xen interface can't manage QEmu VMs.  However, I understand the 
virt-manager GUI Redhat ship is supposed to have support for both Qemu and 
Xen VMs at some level, so maybe that would help you.

Other systems that can run Windows without VT / SVM with better performance 
than plain QEmu are available too.  e.g. VMware's products, kQemu, 
VirtualBox.  But none of these will run on a Xen host.
