I don't understand what you are trying to achieve with creating a FAT
partition on your VBOX disk. The FAT partition should have been created
in the image for the guest. On that image you need multiple partition:
1) FAT partition for UEFI
2) EXT* (or else) partition(s) for your guest filesystem
This requires a bit of work to build your own UEFI image. You are better
to download a distro ready image  that could directly be used.

Hi Julien, Stefano,
Thanks you so much for helping me. I able to boot xen.
Your help has been highly appreciated !!
After opening qemu in efi mode I was trapped in Grub mode so I just have to press esc from the start to remove myself from Grub mode to EFI Shell.
