I found the resolution for it. If we update the bootloader to use grub2
instead of legacy grub it will then list all the options. Linux as well as
Xen related options. For updating the bootloader I followed the steps
mentioned in below link :-
Testing With Chain Loading
GRUB2 includes a boot image that's loadable from GRUB Legacy, so you can
try it out without wiping out your existing, working MBR. To set up GRUB2
without actually writing to the MBR, run
grub2-install --grub-setup=/bin/true /dev/sda
Writing to the MBR
If that works, you can go on testing to writing to your MBR. Same steps as
above, but don't tell grub to run the dummy setup program /bin/true
Congratulations! You've reached the point of no return! If you can't boot
now you will need to run a rescue CD
