on the land line mr. smith.
More info would be helpful. Was this done from Recovery Mode?

Hard to see what the image is...looks like alot of partitions. If everything is gone (you have no data to protect or recover), and you want a fresh install, it would be good to format the drive from Recovery Mode using Disk Utility, and then you are ready for a fresh OS install.

I was trying to start off clean and I pressed control r . I went to
Disk utilities and erased Macintosh to Mac OS extended . I tried installing it after that it did not install so kept restarting my computer and it was stuck on recovery screen.

If you deleted all the partitions then it doesn't have partition recovery. Makes sense
