Try to boot into Recovery. Restart and immediately press ⌘-R. You will need an internet connection for this and may have to select your network connection. Then go into Disk Utility and reformat your drive. Afterwards, go into reinstalling OS X/macOS, whichever is offered to you.

It looks like you are able to boot from an attached drive to be able to bring up Disk Utility. It always helps if you can provide the make/model of your Mac, and the system version you are running. If you were running, or plan on running, macOS 10.13 or newer, you should choose to format the drive as APFS.

Ok I've progressed now. Firstly my machine is an A1706 pro 13" touchbar I managed to get the HD back but still can't install Sierra? I fails right at the end every time. I've tried erasing the drive & running first aid but always same thing?

Try this link to download the installer. Yes, Sierra is on the list. Selecting it will probably launch the App Store and will let you download the installer. When the download is finished, it should launch the installer automatically. It will be located in your Applications folder.

I always tell people to stop the installation, then go into Applications in order to make a copy of the installer file to another location. Then go back to Applications and restart the installer.


The copy is for future use, if you need to reinstall without having to download it over again.
