    I am about to install OS X Mountain Lion on my PC at home. I wanted to know if we need the .dmg of it or the app from the app store.

    I managed to get the .dmg from somewhere, but AFAIK, last time when I tried to install, it asked for the app there was no way you could install a .dmg.

    Could someone help me out with the procedure also once I download it?

    Thanx!

    Its a bit of a catch 22, as you need a system running OSX to be able to restore the InstallESD.dmg to a usb key then make that bootable.

    In the end I used the iAtkos L2 iso to install Lion and then used Lion Diskmaker to make a bootable USB Mountain Lion install drive.

    I tried transmac and had no luck with it. What I ended up doing was i ran 10.7 in vmware, downloaded the dmg from the app store, and used unibeast to make a bootable flash drive. I got as far as booting to the flash drive and it just hangs on the apple logo screen every time I try it. I have Radeon HD 6850s in my pc and I read that you can't boot to the install with that video card. So I borrowed a geforce 210 from a friend and it still wouldn't boot. I have since given up.
