Brand new meaning I buy it from App store and install. But when I buy from App store, it's thru my credit card, meaning this copy will be linked to me. Am I wrong, and if not, how do I accomplish my wish to install a legit OS without being linked to it?

You won't be linked to it. Every copy downloaded from the Store is the same. If it doesn't detect a valid receipt for the OS on your system it will ask for an Apple ID which does. That's only at install time though. If you want to install the OS from scratch, they won't have an issue once it's actually installed.
