Windows 8.1 Install from External DVD Drive

Hey guys, is it possible to install windows 8.1 from an external DVD drive? My build does not include an optical drive, but my wife has a external dvd drive. Will it work similarly to install from a USB flash drive in that you just have to go to the bios and boot from the USB port you have it connected to?

Yes just change the boot drive in the BIOS. I've done it.
