We can't give out links to OSX on this board. You have to find it yourself. There are several good search engines to choose from.


Your best bet is to install a virtual machine like VMWare or VirtualBox. Find yourself a good iso image, boot it in the virtual machine and then have the installer install to a hard drive. You can also find Apple dmg images (like iso's) and use something like TransMac or PowerISO or MagicISO to convert it. MacDrive allows Windows to read and write to OSX formatted drives.


But it would make your life easier if you could just find someone to loan you an optical drive for a few days.
