In response to your questions....,

Why not just migrate your boot images to another drive, install 
and configure Xen, then migrate the images to your new Xen-
Domains? By the time you fish all over the net for answers that,
for all you  know, may not even be there, you could have finished
the above procedure and have your "Xen-Server" up and running.
