External optical drive not appearing in BIOS boot priority.

I'm building my first PC so sorry if I seem like a noob. I opted to not purchase an optical drive with my computer since I figured the only thing I would be using it for anyways was installing my operating system and drivers. Instead, I'm using an external optical drive connected by usb to boot windows and install.

I have plugged in the disk drive and boot into BIOS however the only boot options that appear in the "Hard Disk Boot Priority" menu are my hdd and "Bootable Add-in Cards." There is no option for a usb device or for my external optical drive. Any ideas?

    Check the Motherboard user's manual to verify that it supports booting from USB.
