USB DVD drive install

Hi All - any issues using an external USB optical drive to install Windows 10 OEM on a new build? Sorry for the possibly stupid question... haven't built a new PC in a long time

The only thing that I could think of is checking the BIOS boot setup and ensure that it is picking up the CD Drive. If so, make sure that the boot order is setup so that it will attempt to boot from the CD first or go to the Boot Menu and select the external CD drive.

It should be able to boot normally into the windows installation.
