Well, if none of the ideas already posted for resetting the BIOS work, you
could take the hard drives out of the PCs, install them in another box, wipe
them, and install a minimal Debian installation on them.  Once connected to
the network you could then install the rest of Debian to taste.  Obviously,
non-matching hardware could present a problem.

If you attempt to fix something that isn't broken, it will be.
