Built new computer, how to install windows 8.1 from an external hard drive to the new pc?

Just built a new computer. I downloaded windows 8.1 onto my laptop, and created an iso file. If I extract the iso onto the external hard drive, and start the desktop with the external hard drive in, will it start the install process? thanks
