I installed Xen with following Commands.

apt-get install xen-hypervisor-4.1-i386
apt-get install xen-utils-4.1
apt-get install xenwatch
apt-get install xen-tools
apt-get install xen-utils-common
apt-get install xenstore-utils
apt-get install virtinst
apt-get install virt-viewer
apt-get install virt-manager

as given in

But I cant see any entry for Xen 4.1 in my GRUB Menu upon reboot. (As soon as I install above listed packages)

Any solution? Please Help

have you installed the linux-image-server kernel? – fossfreedom Mar 25 '12 at 20:54

I had the same problem when trying to setup xen.

The commands

apt-get install linux-image-server

made a new entry for xen available in the boot menu. (Thanks to fossfreedom for the hint.)
