How do I install OpenSuse without having a DVD and end up booting from the C: drive?
You can use a USB drive with something like unetbootin to install OpenSuse or any other OS from a *.iso file.

You cannot boot OpenSuse from the C:\ drive because, in Linux, there is no such thing as a C:\ drive. You can learn more about the Linux file structure here.

Boot from CD netinstall and select local or network media.

Boot to usb. Opensuse is a hybrid image and you copy it to usb. See ways also like above with usb creator apps.

Boot to pxe or gpxe/ipxe to network.

Remove drive and put in other system or usb attached.

Can actually make an image at SuseStudio and raw write it to disk.
