[tex-live] Running Live - no access to C drive

    instead I can use my own
    private G drive which has limited space for me to use.

What it needs space for should be only the .fmt files, which should add
up to a few megabytes (depending on how many you need).  If you have
that much available, it should be possible to work it out.  If not, the
only alternative would be to prepare your own CD or DVD with the .fmt
files on it, so that TeX can run entirely from that.  Although there's
been some discussion of this, I'm not aware of any actual distributions
that have been created.

In general, I'm not sure how the Windows installation deals with running
"live" like this.

Sorry I can't be more help,
