    Take the discs that came with your 24-inch iMac and boot with them. Erase the drive using the Disk Utility on the disc and be sure to zero-out to really erase all data. Then Restore the system from those disks.
    I don’t know if the welcome screen will come back or not, but they are still getting a used Mac, so they shouldn’t expect that.
