I am trying to create a bootable disc of mountain lion which I downloaded from torrent so that I can install it in my Macbook. Anybody knows how to do it? My Macbook is down and I have purchased mountain lion from appstore. The Internet recovery is not working and apple telephone support is shit. I only have a window PC to do this. I have no access to any mac machine. Please help me!

    Download Transmac software. On left top under file tab select open disk image. Then choose the file you downloaded mountain lion from torrent. Then on transmac right click on file you mounted into transmac then click burn cd/dvd by inserting blank dvd to your computer tray. Then it creates bootable mountain lion dvd.

    it so easy.
    1. Find the image file from the torrent on your pc
    2. Burn it to a dvd or usb
    3. Plugin the usb in your mac or insert the dvd
    4. Change your BIOS settings to startup from dvd or usb on your mac
    5. Power on your mac when the dvd or usb is in the MacBook
    6. Follow installation guide.
    7. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The easiest way I can think is to run Mountain Lion (or lower) on a virtual machine then use something maybe like SuperDuper! to create a bootable drive.

    Pretty sure double-clicking on an ISO file in windows brings up a burn dialog without the need for additional software...

    The easiest way is to Google for an ISO and burn it to a DVD with a program like InfraRecorder (, it's open source). From the main screen choose Write Image, point to the ISO file you downloaded, click Open, then place a blank DVD (not sure how big a DVD you'll need) and click OK. Wait until the process finishes and try booting your Mac from the DVD you just created.

    I think that you have got the ISO file downloaded from Torrent site.So,to create a bootable DVD of it,simply burn it with ImgBurn software -

    The only real way to do it with windows is to install an older copy of osx on a virtualbox on your pc and then download mountain lion on that. You will of course need a dvd of the older version of osx to install it in virtualbox

    here is a guide
