Isn't really harmful.
This means that it does not find a kernel. Neither in NAND flash nor on SD card.

Maybe the SD card has contact problems? If it has, the file system on SD may be
damaged beyond automatic repair.

> So, any hints what I should do now?

1. try to read/fsck the SD card externally
2. try to clean the contacts of the SD card
