The cabinets have to come out because (a) the subfloor is nailed down under there, and (b) you have to nail down the new subfloor.

You could try a Rotozip with a right angle attachment.

The cabinets have to come out before removing the sub-floor.

There are many variables when replacing the sub-floor. The new material my be thinner or thicker then the original sub-flooring, you have to nail down the sub-floor under the cabinets.

If you are just talking about removing the underlayment up to the vanity, use a toe-kick saw. It is made by Crain. You may be able to rent. Dangerous kick-back, keep a firm grip. You'll have to chisel any inside corners.

If talking the sub-floor, remove the cabinets.
