UAC nags you but proceeds without a password in Vista (OEM
installation). Many Windows users constantly run their system as a admin
without a password. Is that a security issue? yes but considering the
number of Linux users who are unhappy when GDM doesn't allow root user
to login, I would suspect end users don't care about security much, if
at all. Shocking, I know but more to the point, if you want say just
read access, you don't need admin rights to install explore2fs ( Was
just a binary you could run without any installation. Long time since I
did that and things might have changed now but worth considering).
If your system doesn't support USB booting, then you do need regular
media or network boot.
