The article can be accessed simply by clicking the link. The Troubleshooting Assistant will require Flash support. You could also call customer support.

My C75D-A7370 has the same problem. I followed the steps in the troubleshooting assistant and attempted to re-boot from the CD drive with a Windows 8 bootable disk inserted. However, after doing so I get the message "checking media [fail]" This message appears three times at which point the "no bootable device - please restart system " message appears.
The exact same message sequence appears whether I am attempting to boot from the hard drive or from the CD/DVD drive.
I have not tried booting from a USB drive.

That's exactly what happened to mine. i let it run doing updates one night while I went to bed and when I woke up in the morning I got "checking media" "media fail.... no bootable device please restart your system. This whole experience has been a nightmare. I went through FOUR Toshiba laptops to get ONE that works (half assed) and one that is giving me this issue. I have done everything in every Toshiba forum to try to fix it. It will not be fixed. This one is a C55t-A i3 with 6gb ram and I have been afraid to download anything on it because I keep getting bogged down and error messages. Ity's already been reset by Toshiba support and refreshed over the phone. BOTH OF THEM.
The one I am on is slower than crap, has been giving me high CPU usage errors since I took it out of the box, It gives me black screens, and freezes up and I know any day it's going to die and neither of them are 6 months old yet.
I used to be a die hard Toshiba fan, I owned 6 of them not including these. They were great! I recommended them to everyone. Now I am afraid to. If you can help me fix these I would be happy! Thank you.

If you are getting this kind of message "No bootable device" it means we are getting a problem to the internal Hard Drive of the laptop. Please contact the manufacturer for warranty service.
Btw I posted the steps on how to access UEFI on this page. Please click the link http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Windows-8-8-1/how-to-

so if i change the hard drive , every thing will work just fine .
Thats right! As long as you have a recovery media and have it installed on the new hard drive then everything will be fine.
HERE is the link if you dont have your own recovery media.
