I use an Arch Linux distro on flash drive with VirtualBox. I then attach
an eSATA or USB 3 disk (Seagate GoFlex) and run the machines from there.
Arch bootstraps VirtualBox and my disks are on the large drive. Worked
for me to run my own stuff on a locked down client laptop. I didn't want
to break their stuff, so I would boot off flash to do my thing. Not sure
why they hadn't locked down the boot options/order or the USB/eSATA
port, but that's another story.
