I have a server (4 GB RAM, 64-Bit Intel Atom 330 1.6 GHz processor).

The processor doesn't support any kind of virtualization (I looked up the documentation).

Can I still use Xen to make several servers out of it, using virtualization or paravirtualization?

If yes, please also name whether it's virtualization or paravirtualization that's possible.

Yes you can use Xen.

But you can only use paravirtualization, so that you need a modified guest OS.

Modified Windows guest suitable for paravirtualization are not available, so you can only use Linux guests.

There is only one version of Windows that has been modified by microsoft that supports the paravirtualization with Xen,it's xp. but you will not be able to find a copy of it.
