    How are you trying to reinstall it? Internet recovery? Recovery partition? USB recovery?

    Perhaps worth a try to create an Installer following the steps in the linked reply from this thread:

    Is that how you created your "thumb" drive? (dumb drive?)

    If your laptop is new enough, you should be able to use Internet recovery. Just hold down "command+ r" when you're booting and it should allow you to download the OS via the Internet. I'd plug it into Ethernet in order to avoid any issues with WiFi.
