There is another option

There is a version of Windows that can run as live cd...the utility cd version of it is called Ultimate Boot CD for Windows

Its based off of Bart's Preinstalled Environment (BartPE) and the only thing is you have to build it yourself (licensing stuff), however I believe you can then build the game for it..however you will probably have to use a DVD to fit the OS and the game on thier..but it should work.

It uses XP or 2003 and should be able to make a decent game platform for you (or you will be able to build a plugin (check licensing 1st))

Otherwise ask your admin gurus to allow you to have a Gig of "unencrypted" harddrive space for you to put your game on and use the UBCD4Win to do the OS stuff

What about using a [url=]USB 2.5" laptop harddrive for your gaming stuff? (I used mine to hold my U2K4 install directory and play from that instead of the harddrive (to save space))

Will the laptop boot from a USB device??
