External Hardware and Installing Linux

I am new to Linux. I just bought an external hard drive and tried to install Linux. It is not recognizing the drive. I tried to change the boot sequence in BIOS, but for some reason when I click on the option and hit ENTER I am not able to get into the setup. Can someone help? Thanks
