[opensuse] making iso from distribution bootable usb stick

We all probably know several ways to create a bootable usb stick from an iso image. I have lot of them in my openSUSE booth kit.

But from time to time, pretty rarely, I get a computer that do not want to boot my usb pen. I had that yesterday, a 32 bits computer that booted leap 64 usb (onbly to say it can't install it, of course), but refused to boot 13.2 32 bits (that booted perfectly on the next computer).

So, as I don't want to keep several dvd with me, I would like to know how to extract the iso from the usb device to copy it to a blank dvd (I can have spare ones).

optionally, I was said it's possible with debian usb pen to boot any (probably debian) media, plug the usb and continue install from there. Is it possible to do the same with openSUSE? If so, I could use a single boot dvd and run after this any usb pen

in other words, is it possible to launch yast-install from the command line?
