Have you actually TRIED creating a HVM domU on that server?
I think the HVM (as well as some other) flag is hidden intentionally
on some versions of xen. Same thing happened on my RHEL 5 + Xen 3.3.1
while the flag still shows up on RHEL 5's stock Xen. Both systems are
able to start HVM domU normally.
