    Factory restore iMac without CDs

    Hello everyone, I got a used beat up iMac from my brother without CDs, keyboard or mouse, I got a logitech desktop for it and it seems to be working fine, it was running snowleopard and windows 7 (on bootcamp) smoothly but I upgraded the win7 to win8 developer preview, which somehow damaged the Mac os, now I would like to recover the whole thing back to Factory default, a clean slate sort off, but apparently I need the CDs for that, isn't there any way I can factory restore or install a new mac os on it without its original CDs? Like downloading an iso, burning and booting from it??? I have no ideas, please help :(

    You can get all OS' from the web. Some you'll have to pay for but most you'll get free. Do the search.
