  • There is a way:
    Your Mac may come with two restore DVDs or a restore USB drive. Plug it in and press the power key than HOLD DOWN option until it displays on screen. Then,format the hard drive to HFS+. Finally install OS X.
    If you lost the restore DVDs (or it didn't come with you Mac), just buy it then install it in same way. It works the same but it isn't legal.

  • Unfortunately you can not do this legally as it would violate Apple's EULA rights. My best advice is to just buy a Mac. They are the best anyway in my opinion.

    Hope that this has answered your question.
