Why are the downloads all just pdf guides? The descriptions indicate that these are the OS downloads.

I downloaded the .zip but I was unable to successfully extract the content.  It appears that the .app is wasn't successfully compressed.

Not there to download really crappy.  WTF. Not impressed at all. Im am tired of trying out MAC OS. Getting rid of all this craptastical Mac hardware and going back to PC and Linux. Utterly disappointed with my year foray in Mac. Apple Sucks. Hackintosh sucks.

In response to @orangefruit and @ednygma and @kerfax the downloads are not all PDFs, and they are all available (at least they are when I'm looking, here in March 2019). I thought the same thing at first, too, but the 'php' download is the full .dmg image. Hackintosh Download has saved my bacon with my old Macbook Pro from mid 2011; it had been updated to High Sierra and needed to be re-imaged, but the built-in restore was corrupted. Even Internet Restore wouldn't work because the laptop first came with Snow Leopard which doesn't support Internet Restore. Being able to nab these macOS files here is amazingly helpful!!

Hello, at reading the comments I'm asking myself if it works ...? "(...) needed to be re-imaged" + "the built-in restore was corrupted" :/ I have a Macbook Pro late 2011 on mac os x 10.7.5 ...it's old ;) What should I do then, hackintosh or not hackintosh, that's the question.

As of 9/29/19 the installer is corrupt and will not work.  I tried it twice on my 2007 Macbook pro to no avail.  Is there a specific way to use the dmg file?

Correction it does work, but you have to do the following things to get it working correctly.

1. Use disk utility to create two new partitions out of free space on your hard drive.  One small like 15GB for the OSX DMG to be 'repaired' or 'restored" to and a larger partition to actually install the OSX on.

2. Once you've created those partitions, unzip the OSX of your choice and get back into disk utility.

3.  Use disk utility to 'repair' or 'restore' the OSX DMG to the small partition.

4.  Restart the Mac and hold 'option' key after the boot sound.

5.  Use the installer partition to install onto the larger partition you just made.

6. Run the installer and get it setup.  Depending on your hard drive type, could take 20 to 60 minutes.

7. Finish setup and start installing software, assuming the older OSX recognizes your newer hardware.  

8.  I just did this on my 2011 MacBook Pro so I could install an older version of Pro Tools and other softwares.  It works great.  Nice to have the use of this more powerful hardware with older software.  

Thanks.

Adding onto what DisconnectedAV stated, this is actually the InstallESD.dmg of the Mountain Lion installer. If you already have a Mountain Lion installer, you can just replace the InstallESD.dmg to have the latest version available in the installer. NOTE: THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH MACOS INSTALLERS ABOVE 10.9 (MAVERICKS) AS IT HAS A DIFFERENT WAY OF INSTALLING THE OS.
