Installing Windows 8 from disc with no optical drive?

Hi guys, I bought the NZXT H440 for my first build and it's on its way however I overlooked the fact that it doesn't have any optical drive bays. How do I now install my Windows 8 disc? Can I still use the optical drive that I bought but just not be able to mount it to the case? I could do with a little help here, thanks.

As long as the CD/DVD drive uses SATA interface and you realize it is only a temporary measure to install the OS, should not be an issue.
