I can just to give my own experience with my PC's company (lenovo T60) 
under Windows Xp.
==> The administrators had disabled the possibility to boot from USB key 
or DVD-Rom.

The solutions aborded in the differents branch of thread are not 
sufficients. Only an installation based on wubi.exe and the ubuntu 10.04 
iso was possible for have a first installation in a big file on ntfs ... 
but with a dual-boot.
In second time, I have made my installation directly on the disk 
(without the big file), but I have used for that the dual-boot installed 
with wubi.

So, if you have a solution for install Mageia without a DVD/CD-Rom or 
USB key and directly since an executable played under windows (from 
network other from an non burned iso) ... that's will be great.
