    i) you dont say how big the hard drive is, or how much used/free space there is on it
    ii) is this the only drive/partition in the machine
    iii) is this an install / upgrade over the top of a previous version of Windows

    No you cant move the OS to the ext drive and no it wouldnt work properly
