I'm guessing you are talking about an external hard drive with a USB connection, yes?

You can not use external HDDs with a USB connection as a boot drive, or find it in the BIOS at all. It is a USB device and the computer will not detect it as a STORAGE device. The only storage devices in your laptop are the HDD/SSD connected via SATA.
