EDIT: New way to deploy version 11.xx:

1. Download Opera
2. Start install - select under Options:

- Language
- Installation to Folder: USB (select a folder for the files)
- Links as you like
- deselct: Opera as standard

3. After install Opera you can take this folder with witem, installshield, or any other msi-packer to compile a msi-package.
4. Deploy the msi

Alternative:

Pack the files with free innosetup to an unattended exe-installer.

Command line options

When launching the installer from the command line, you have a number of options available:
/installfolder <folder> : Where to install. This will be reflected in the wizard.
/silent : Skips the wizard and installs directly, using the options set on the command line


The following options are currently only working in Silent mode:
/copyonly : Only copies the files to the installation folder and does *nothing* else. All other options are ignored, except /singleprofile
/allusers : If used, shortcuts will be created in the common profile folders and registry changes will be done on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (system wide). Otherwise, shortcuts are created in the user profile folders and registry changes will only touch HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
/singleprofile : Writes operaprefs_default.ini to specify that the profile folder is to be created/found under the installation folder (previously called single user).
/setdefaultbrowser : Sets opera as the default browser once the installation has completed.
/nostartmenushortcut : Don't create a start menu shortcut.
/nodesktopshortcut : Don't create a desktop shortcut.
/noquicklaunchshortcut : Don't create a quick launch shortcut.
/launchopera : Launches Opera once the installation has completed.

Note
The new installer is created like the Chrome installer. It will install default to the logged in user profile. And live update will be enabled.

So I unpacked all the files with 7Zip. Added a shortcut and the file operaprefs_default.ini to the same folder. Made a script to copy the files from server to c:\programfiles\opera.

The operaprefs_default.ini file contains some usefull settings. The Level of update automation clears the live updates setting. (yes, minus1)

Here is how you install a certificate:
Make the folder: "%appdata%\Opera\Opera" Start Opera and install the certificate. Close Opera. Find the file "%appdata%\Opera\Opera\opcacrt6.dat".

In the installation, you copy it from server to "%appdata%\Opera\Opera\". This can be done pre install.

Note
I'm about to customize the MSi for Opera 10.x.
The MSI package contains a bunch of propertys to customize your installation.

I've used the following properties:

CREATE_DESKTOP_ICON_REG 0 //to not create a desktop icon
CREATE_DESKTOP_ICON_REG_USR 0 //to not create an user desktop icon
CREATE_QUICKLAUNCH_ICON_REG 0 //to not create a quicklaunch icon
CREATE_QUICKLAUNCH_ICON_REG_USR //to not create an user quicklaunch icon
CREATE_STARTMENU_ICONS_REG 2 // Starmenut entrys
CREATE_STARTMENU_ICONS_REG_USR 2 // User starmenut entrys
SET_DEFAULT_BROWSER 0 // as we use FF as default browser this property has been set to zero
