How can I do a fresh OSX install with only access to linux?
I have a mac and the hard drive had an obvious physical crash after an encounter with a strong magnet. I put a new drive in but it seems all instructions for fresh-installs on OSX make use of another mac. I have linux machines (all debian flavors if it matters) but no other macs.
This related question is more narrow and doesn't seem to have a definitive answer anyway.
