    So you're looking for help with reinstalling OS X with a broken drive?

    Yes, and from what you say NEITHER computer will read dvds. If it were me I'd get at least one of the two Macs up and running with a sound optical drive. The Mac mini would be the simplest and probably the cheapest to upgrade. There's a useful link on How To here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIbPzqZdpZI.

    Failing that, as i.shaun says, an external optical drive may be your best option.

    Il n'a pas de choix. Boot from an external drive or don't reinstall at all.
