    You arn't connected to the internet when you boot your computer, that isn't the problem. If the boot disc is in the computer you would just press CMD C to boot from it, and then reinstall OSX. You can also make a USB drive and boot it from that.

    What does it tell you when you go into the options menu after holding down the CMD R. There should be a option to reinstall OSX

    Specs:
    Imac 27", i7 3.5GHz, 3TB Fusion drive, 32GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Well what Mac, is it Lion compatible, and has Lion been running on it previously?
    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!
