According to I've bought Mountain Lion, but where can I download it now? it should be in my purchase tab, but it isn't. ("option" does not help, it just lets you redownload if it is already in the list - which it isn't)
I would like an installable version of Mountain Lion to run inside parallels for testing software I develop against 10.8 (and potentially also 10.7, but let's stick to 10.8 for now).
How can I get an installer for older versions?
edit: found a way (for some reason site won't let me post this as an answer)
Use "Internet Recovery" (option-R during boot), and install Mountain Lion into an external USB drive. Then get parallels to import that. Awkward, but it works.
