Hello, if your iMac is flashing a globe and it shows you no disks in disk utility from the installer then your hard drive has died. The iMac is trying to netboot (using the globe) because it has no other media to boot from. The optical disc you've used (install disc) is possible to be booted from therefore you should run hardware diagnostics to confirm this problem, and determine if any other hardware is affected.
Insert the install disc and hold down D at boot time to start in hardware diagnostics. Make sure you insert the disc that says it has Apple Hardware Diagnostics on the gray label. Good luck!
