    Do you have access to another Mac? If so try booting in target disk mode and repairing the disk from the other Mac using disk utility.

    See if the HDD is available for repair via the iMac. Sounds like the drive or mobo has failed.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Sounds like your hard drive is dead then. I'd pick up a new 2.5in HDD, and reinstall. The only other thing you could do is to pull the drive and check it in an external enclosure, just to make sure it isn't something wrong with the computer.
