Does the external HD enclosure have any activity lights? Are they active when booting, and then stop when you get the message? It could be an issue with power, you're running off USB 2.0? 1.1? What distro? The installation could be corrupt. What's the full error message, exactly? The distro would be nice to know also, there are several ways that this could go.
