    Use one of your other Macs, with a 8GB USB stick, and download Yosemite, and make a Yosemite installer with the following instructions:

    Boot it up (holding down option key at start until the USB stick appears as a drive you can boot from) and go to Disk Utility, from there see if you can repair your hard drive (if it doesn't appear as a device in the list on the left side, then it's likely your hard drive is dead).
