Macbook OS X Problem

Hey guys i'm new to the Forum and i never had a problem with my mac since now... so i'm needing some help.
My Macbook suddendly stopped booting, while the grey screen is ON he goes down for no reason.
After some research i discovered my HDD is failing and i needed a new one. So i installed a new hard drive on it.
My problema now is that i need to install OS X on it... since i didn't had it on DVD i ended up downloading a torrent with a .DMG on it ...
Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4 (installer from Mac App Store) (download torrent) - TPB)
Since my other computer is a Windows one i installed transmac on it and tried to make a bootable usb pen with it... but i'm having no luck since i can't boot it up from the USB disk.
What am i doing wrong? is there any other way to do this?
Thanks in advance,

Mountain Lion is $19.99 from the App Store. Find a person with a Mac or go to the Apple Store and purchase a legal copy and then create a installer on a USB Flash drive and use it to install OS X on your new hard drive..
Resorting your piracy will only get you into trouble..
