Hi Soren,
 
Consolations ! I have had this happen several times. In two cases, the boot-disk had "died."
 
In other cases, I was able to get around the no-boot scenario by dis-connecting all other drives, dis-connecting the SATA cable from the boot-drive, and the motherboard, and re-connecting them, and then re-booting. If no re-boot after re-connecting the original SATA cable: I then plugged in my spare SATA cable and re-tested.
 
Once I verified I could re-boot off the primary drive, I re-connected other drives, and checked the BIOS to make sure I had the correct primary boot disk selected: then re-tested, to make sure I could boot with all drives connected.
 
Needless to say, I breathed a sigh of relief when I could re-boot without a complete drive image restore, and immediately created a new archived boot-drive image: in case what happened was a "first symptom" of drive failure.
 
Whether what I did will work for you, or anyone else, I have no idea; I can only say: that was my experience.
 
best, Bill
