Yes you can, but you will have to install the OS you use like Windows for example and then going into the BIOS and then under the Boot order settings and set your external HDD to be the first HDD to boot. Note that you can only do this if your External HDD is connected to your PC by SATA cable or if it's a USB external HDD, you will have to take out the HDD out of the enclosure and then install it inside your PC with a SATA cable and SATA power cable from your computers PSU. SATA cables are cheap too.

you cannot install windows on a external disc drive. You can however offload files from your system drive to your external to make room or change your drives over if it is much bigger but that will be a lot of work.
The easiest way for this would be to clone
