Go into the BIOS and check if the disk is recognized. If not, open the cover to where the disk is and try re-seating it. If it then is seen in the BIOS, try booting again. If it is still not visible in the BIOS after that, replace the disk and restore your OS from your backups or from the recovery media you made when you got the PC. If you were running Windows 10, you can also download the OS from the M$ site, create a bootable USB stick, boot the PC from the stick and then just install Windows 10. Make sure you install the same version of Windows 10 you had before (Home or Professional).

If the disk is seen by the BIOS, and still won't work, run the disk manufacturer's diagnostic utility on it. You'll find most of those diagnostics  on the UBCD:

If you are using an SSD, you will have to remove the disk from the mini and connect it internally as a 2nd disk to another PC, download the SSD's utility from the manufacturer and test it that way.

If the diagnostic fails and can't fix the disk, you will also have to replace it as I mentioned above.

If the diagnostic is fine, boot the system from Paragon's Rescue Kit and allow it to try to fix boot errors:

If that doesn't help, you will again have to restore the OS using the methods I described earlier.
