That's incorrect. That message is one for which the tool and article were created. The laptop can't boot.

How can you access these things through a smart phone. As a customer I have paid over $1200 dollars for my computer, so it being out of action for even a minute, has me disgusted and outraged. Please email me at hickonastick@gmail.com
If you can't solve this problem, then direct me to someone who can.

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.
