I don't understand what you mean by link your desktop to it? I thought you did not have an internal dvd drive. If you want to use dvd to install then yes go get the external dvd drive. if not just use usb and the tool that PP Mguire said to use

If you're installing Win7 or Win8, you can use Microsoft's USB tool that PP linked to:
