I have replied.
Continue here please
I have just checked the link and it is still live and working.
and to resume, as was said before your first task is to see if you can from the RC boot it and see if it finds a windows installation.
Basically the problem, whatever it is, has been caused by leaving a computer FOR SIX YEARS and then suddenly expecting all to WORK perfectly.
SIX years of updates alone would throw the system into total confusion.
AND if it is SIX years since it was used, as against just six years since it was connected to the internet, then there is every possibility that the failure to boot in any mode, is due to a fault developing in the electronics, namely a capacitor, diode etc
being powered for the first time in years,
STANDING unused for that length is NOT good for these components.

Colleague Macboatmaster is taking care of you here so I will only pitch in if I have an additional idea.
There is a strong possibility that when you disconnected from the internet the system was actually updating so your problem may have been caused by an aborted install, the work that Mac suggests will help you correct this.
Hi Macboatmaster, I trust that you find my approach here appropriate

He and I often contribute to the same topic.
I do not think you are going very far until you can run the Recovery Console.
