It is easier to use a USB stick. Generally 8gb is plenty but I have mine on a 16GB one., It has to be bootable, and your external drive probably is not bootable.

You can recover what was on the external drive if you want.

I have used this program with success.

DO NOT RESET>>

Hum it should of been Settings>Update & Security>Windows Update OK may not of been installed with Windows 10 1803 version, 1903 does have it like I describe.

So to run it you will need to boot from the USB Stick.
