I dont have external drive that I can use at the moment to transfer windows to my newly built PC. So I was wondering if it's possible that I plug in my windows surface instead and transfer it that way.

No.
You need a USB flash drive, 8GB or larger, to boot from.
With nothing else on it, because that data would be deleted.
