I would like to run Windows (XP preferred) games and Linux on my MacBook Pro I got from school. However, there are some rules I have to follow. If I need to I will try to further clarify the rules, since they are in Swedish and there isn't a perfect translation.
I cannot use Boot Camp. This is because Windows machines get viruses 24/7 and there are no viruses on Mac. Furthermore, we are using Visual Studio for about half the things we do through a virtual machine. Perfect for debugging, performance and "virtual machines don't get viruses", right? At least that's what my teachers think.
I cannot change the default setup of the computer. In Swedish this basically tells me I cannot even start it up because then I will mount the drive, and make changes in RAM, and use the processor, and move electrodes from the battery and so on. They're telling me that that's way to specific, though, and that we aren't allowed to change the operating system files. I think we break that rule with each update, install or setting we ever touch.
I may not use any program without first showing a receipt. The original casing, CD and the CD key isn't enough. A license like GNU is ok, though.
I basically need a way to boot into a USB drive or CD, with the ability to use network and DX9 to play games on Windows. Linux support isn't as crucial since OS X does have a lot of Linux support already. I've tried other ways of working around the rules like running games in Wine but I can't get DX9 based games to work and the FPS is terrible.
They have the right to check the computer at any time to see if there is something bad there. Swapping a harddrive will definately be noticed.
