- Starting with OS X Lion, Apple did away with DVDs and other media as a method of installing software and switched to a download model instead.Even so, it's still easy to create a USB installation disk for OS X Lion if you want to install Lion on a freshly formatted hard drive, if you're in an emergency booting situation, or if you need to repair your Mac's hard drive.
- Mountain Lion, like Lion before it, lets you boot your Mac into a special recovery mode called OS X Recovery. This mode includes a few essential utilities for fixing problems, restoring files.

Ask a friend/acquaintance at work/school who owns a mac to download the Mountain Lion installer from the app store and use it to create a bootable USB installer drive. You'll need to supply them with a USB drive (8Gb or larger), and possibly buy them a beverage of their choice to say thanks afterwards. I currently use OS 10.8.3 on my Mid-2012 13” 2.9 GHz i7 MacBook Pro, OS 10.6.8 on my Mid-2006 20” 2.16 GHz Core2Duo iMac, and 10.8.3 on my Mid-2012 2.4 GHz 12-core (dual 6-core) Xeon Mac Pro at work, and they are all very well maintained with DiskWarrior, Disk Utility, iDefrag, etc.

You can't. You can download it to your computer then transfer it to a DVD but you would not be able to boot the computer from the DVD. You need to make a special installer for a USB flash drive.
If Lion is the version of OS X that you want, then you can do this:
You can purchase Lion at the Online Apple Store. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax. It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.
