    I have a Mac Mini with Mountain Lion and it will not boot. I tried downloading and reinstalling Mountain Lion from the restore menu but it says it is temporarily unavailable everytime I try to start the download after entering my Apple id and password. I downloaded a dmg of mavericks that I want to make a bootable flash drive with on my Windows pc

    Not sure what that is. The only thing I can do on my Mini is boot into the utility/recovery menu and it will let me restore Mountain Lion but the download will never start
