    • You cannot download 10.5 (Leopard).  It only comes on DVD.  If you find a download, it is A) illegal and B) it may be a trojan to install malware on your Mac.
    • You cannot download 10.6 (Snow Leopard).  It only comes on DVD.  If you find a download, it is A) illegal and B) it may be a trojan to install malware on your Mac.
    • You can download 10.7 (Lion) if and ONLY if you have Snow Leopard installed with the App Store, AND your Mac is not able to upgrade to Mountain Lion - Must contact Apple store to get special code
    • You can download 10.8 (Mountain Lion) if and ONLY if you have Snow Leopard or Lion installed, and your Mac can upgrade to Mountain Lion.

     

    See <https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4140356?start=15&tstart=0> See about getting older Mac OS X DVDs.  Call the 1-800-692-7753 or 1-800-676-2775 numbers to see if you can get a DVD for Leopard or Snow Leopard.


    If that does not work, try eBay or similar reseller.  Make sure you do not buy a "Gray" colored DVD as the gray colored DVD are tied to a specific Make and Model Mac.
