That message is indicating the hard drive has probably failed.  It is a generic message for that.  The other possibilty is there is disk in the DVD/CD drive or a media card in one of the card readers.

The device does not have a dvd/cd rom so this cannot be the case?

The problem mostly points toward the hard disk , that it is failed ( the problem no bootable device means your system does not have any drive from which your system can boot) try uefi diagnostics for hard disk and if the test passes try reinstalling os . . . . . Open the system with no external device connected
