No you can't do this. One of the pre-requisites of BF (and most other games) is you must have an operating system installed.

In order to install and play Battlefield 2142, your system must meet or exceed the following minimum system requirements.

Operating system: Windows XP with latest service pack installed

You could however set up a separate gaming profile on your computer (in either XP or Vista) in which you have disabled any background programs you think are slowing your performance.
