Can I use mbed os in other cortex M3 that have no starter kit show and how?

I have a custom make board with ST32F103C8T6, how can I start a project by mbed os?

Sure. That's possible in general. I'd choose a target-board that's "close" to your custom board (MCU, available ram, clock must match) and compile your program against it. Then take the hex file and flash it using some debugging probe. Buying a starter kit is a good idea as they often include a decent debugging probe. For instance I use a nrf51-dk for testing and programming external boards and compile against the HRM1017 (nrf51 based without XTAL). The resulting hex is flashed to a Xuntong PTR51 (nrf51 based without XTAL) board which I use in my projects.

For more details on how to start an mbed project with STM32F103C8T6 board please have a look at https://developer.mbed.org/users/hudakz/code/STM32F103C8T6_Hello/.
