    Have you got an Apple ID on iTunes?


    Firstly, does the beta still let you use a recovery mode

    Otherwise.....
    To download Mountain Lion you will have to buy it from the App store, either by setting up a temporary account on someone else's Mac (be sure to delete the user account with your Apple ID after use), download the software and copy it onto a bootable USB stick

    Or if you contact Apple and live near a store, they might help you out
