Solved Would a external optical drive work for me? Tags: DVD Drives Optical Media New Build Storage Last response: June 3, 2012 8:20 PM in Storage Share rocknrollz June 3, 2012 5:20:53 PM I am currently in the process of purchasing pieces for a new build. If I were to leave out buying the OD, could I install windows from an external OD that plugs in via USB? Or would I run into any problems? Asus P8Z77-V LK is the motherboard I would be using.
