OK, I'm going to try this here in the os section. I have a 2012 mac mini that will not work doing internet restore. I just get the spinning globe for hours and no downloading. There is no restore partition, did not come with one. How can I install mavericks on it so I can connect to itunes and update. It's not accessible, the only way (possibly) I can see is with dvd (usb drive) or usb flash drive. How can I do this using a windows computer to set it up? Is it possible? Taking it to an apple store is not an option, none here in mexico.
