I don't get it. Do you have the machine with you or not? If not, then how do you plan to install anything on it? :dontgetit: 

 

Modern Macs should support Internet Recovery. That would probably be the easiest approach,

There is a key you can press during boot-up that will take the MacBook into recovery mode. Will allow you either via Ethernet or WiFi to connect to apple and re-install MacOS X. It will first give you the version that shipped with your Mac and then you will manually have to keep updating it.

I'd like to point to this article on Apple Support 

 

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204267

 

Look for the Power issues headline. I think some of those tricks might help. 

 

Can you take out the battery of the Mac? If you can then do that and proceed with booting.
