I don't know how to install MAC OS.

You cannot install a MAC OS onto a Windows system. You need a MAC computer.

If you buy a Mac, it comes with the OS already installed. No need to download it then.

And - unluckily - Apple doesn't allow installing a Mac OS on anything else then their own Macs. Nor do they provide a download for such purposes.

So I'm locking this thread. Please appreciate that we protect you from doing something illegal.
