I've erased everything but TWRP recovery and fast boot. I need to install an operating system. I can use fast boot or boot into recovery. How can I get an operating system back on the phone?

The closest I've found is cm-11.0-XNPH25R-bacon-signed-fastboot_64GB.zip but I can't fast boot it or any of its components. Says there are no partition tables.

Is there a way to copy a zip file to the system that I can install in recovery?

Use an adb push command to send a ROM zip to your internal storage, then flash it.

I sent a ROM zip to internal storage, but it failed when updating partitions.

Exactly what did you do to bork your partitions?

That's it? That shouldn't bork your partition tables. Which ROM zip did you attempt to flash?

I have tried three: Slim-bacon-4.4.4.build.6.8-WEEKLY-5783.zip, cm-11.0-XNPH25R-bacon-signed-fastboot_64GB.zip, and cm-11.0-XNPH25R-bacon-signed-fastboot.zip

I don't think the last two are flashable in recovery, they're fastboot images. You said you're unable to flash those via fastboot, right?

Yes, I'll download and ADB another rom. TWRP does do some repairs.

Flashed mahdi-2.7-bacon-20140807.zip after a few TWRP repairs & factory reset and it has booted. Back in business. Thanks for your help.
