How do I do this install method?

I want to transfer the OS ISO file to a HDD I have connected externally.
Then after I do that,ill simply put the HDD in the laptop & install from the HDD.
How do I go about doing this?I got daemon lite,never used it before.I was trying to mount the IMG to the actual external HDD,not a virtual drive thats on my current HD in use.When I try to add a drive,it just makes one its self with a random letter.And won't let me select my external HDD.
Its formatted correctly & ready,just can't get the IMG mount part down.
