Can you please provide the output of virsh --connect xen:/// capabilities

 
Here is the output

virsh --connect xen:/// capabilities

<capabilities>

  <host>
    <cpu>
      <arch>x86_64</arch>
      <features>
        <pae/>

      </features>

    </features>
  </guest>

</capabilities>

 
My guess is that libvirt did not detect fullvirt xen capability, so
virt-manager is only providing install options for PV guest (which is URL only
on linux).
The machine which  I am having is a non VT 64 bit machine and I am trying to create 32 bit guest on it 
since hardware is non VT so  I feel it will only have either a 32 bit HVM guest or PV guest.

virsh version shows me 
Compiled against library: libvir 0.7.5
Using library: libvir 0.7.5
Using API: QEMU 0.7.5
Running hypervisor: QEMU 0.12.3

On Xen list people told that above is wrong and since the last line should mention Running Xen and not Qemu,
