I assume it's not screwed down, that would be too easy.
You could always use a circular saw(skill saw) set at the right depth for
the presswood thickness, and do some cuts around the peremter of the room, then use a pry bar to lift the sheet with nails.
A receprocating saw or sawzall could cut where the skill saw won't.
Good luck with this project,
