Are you attempting to install it for the external drive or play it from the external drive?
Where did the download come form?
Re download it may be corrupt?
Maybe it would install from the primary drive?

OK i found this info...
Usb 3.0 will severely bottleneck an SSD. 5 gb/s (gigabits per second) equals 640 MB/s (Megabytes per second) or . 64 GB/s. Usb 3.0 will only give you 1/10th to 1/20th the possible speed of the drive.


Also supposedly this a work around..

And quote:
If you do go this route, you get the best speed in Windows by enabling "write caching" for the drive. You connect it to USB, and then you have to turn on write caching in device manager, but you have to use the "safe removal" feature of Windows before unplugging it everytime (just like you did in Win7 days) .
