I am new here and I hope that this is the right place to find an answer.
My questin is: How can I install a new copy of OS X on my Mac, using Linux?
I recently bought a Macbook Pro from a friend. I am not sure what's the exact model. This friend installed Windows XP on the mac (I don't know how exactly) and that's it. Nothing else is on the HDD. I tried to boot into recovery mode - doesn't work. I tried to boot into internet recovery - nothing happens. I tried Safe boot by pressing Shift Key - nothing happens.
I created a bootable USB using another Windows PC - doesn't show up when I press C or option key. The only thing that show's up when I press the option key is a HDD icon named Windows with an arrow under it. If I click it, it takes me to Windows XP, which I cannot use properly. The only thing I was able to do is to install Linux Mint 14 from an old DVD, which works ok except I don't have Wi-Fi.
I've tried different USB sticks, created with Transmac or power iso or with terminal in Linux but nothing showing up the USB so I can boot from. Any ideas why? Thanks in advance.
