What does flashing Question Mark Folder mean on bootup?

I disassembled my Mac Mini A1347 to fix the audio jack. I followed the guides and was extremely careful about handling, grounding myself, connection damage, etc. I get the boot-up fanfare but then there is a flashing ? on a Grey Folder. Did I kill it or is it possible something is not connected right?

Steen Rancher, this from Apple.com "If your Mac starts up to a gray screen (with no flashing question mark) or a flashing question mark or flashing globe, give the computer a few more moments to locate its system software. If you normally start your computer from an external drive (Thunderbolt, FireWire or USB) make sure the drive is connected and powered on.

If your computer still does not start up, try the next set of steps to help your computer find its system software.

Turn off your Mac by pressing and holding its power button for a few seconds.

Press the power button once to turn your Mac back on. Then, hold down the Option key on your keyboard until the Startup Manager appears.

Select your startup disk from the list of drives that appear on screen.

If your computer finishes starting up normally, choose System Preferences from the Apple menu. Then, click the Startup Disk icon in the System Preferences window.

Select your normal startup volume (such as Macintosh HD) from the list of drives that appear in the Startup Disk window." check to make sure that you seated all your cables correctly, specially the HDD

Thanks for the info.

I discovered the connection to the HDD had popped loose when I re-installed the WiFi antenna. The drive doesn't lock in place and can shift while putting antenna screws in. easy fix - fortunately!
