    You can get the "No Bootable Device" when the hard drive is:

    disconnected,
    hasn't had an Operating System installed on it,
    the Operating System that is on it has been damaged, or
    the hard drive is dead.

    Note that all hard drives eventually die. They are mechanical beasts with constantly spinning platters and reciprocating heads. Over time those moving parts cause wear. And when the wear becomes great enough, the hard drive can simply no longer perform the job it was designed to perform and needs to be replaced.
