Windows 7: Disk boot failure, Insert system disk and press enter

You can repair HD's by a combination of chkdsk /r run from Windows or the DVD/Repair CD if necessary, and the maker's diag/repair full CD scan.

Chkdsk repairs the file system, CD repair scan does surface repairs - they work in tandem and should be run together, and repeated after one finds errors to repair.

My external HD works again on this PC. After replacing this PC's serial ATA cable, I did a full reformat of the OS and everything worked fine again. I had the external HD inserted while I was reformatting the OS.
