You can try to do it right away... the way to do it already exists:

WinXP x86 SP2 or SP3 also boot in EFI32 - tested only on VMware Workstation 8. EFI loader (files) are from Longhorn Vista x86 6.0.5219.0. Information on how to do this can be found from this post:  https://www.betaarchive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=433345#p433345

For unknown reasons , it failed to work on my laptop where XP works with csm enabled but it worked on my desktop.

Reactos is adding UEFI to freeloader. I am looking forward to that which will surely work with hal patch.

I am writing driver for Intel NIC card but I don't have any datasheet to begin with.

What should i do? 

As with any other hardware that omit documentation - first check whether Linux sources exist.
