    Specs:
    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Try zapping the PRAM by rebooting and holding down Option, Command (one with the Apple icon) P and R keys all at the same time immediately after the chimes. Keep held down until after the third chime.

    Other than this have you got a spare hard drive you can install?
