Ok, try a recovery startup, hold the option key, the command key and the R key down while booting up the machine, It may work (depends on the actual age). If it does you will (after a while) see a spinning globe on screen, if you do then recovery is starting. When it has started their will be a menu with several choices, installing the operating system is one of them.


Hold the keys until the globe appears.
