How to force ark dev kit to download onto a hardrive through mac

i have an extremely weak computer, with a very small amount of storage (250 gigs technically, but 200 is taken up by system things i dont even know how its always been like this). im getting a new laptop with 32 gigs of ram that can handle things like unreal engine and ark without me having to make the quality of graphics dog water. it could also handle virtual machine. however, i want to download everything i need before hand onto my 500 gig hard drive so i can just set it up and not have to wait hours for everything. I mainly want this for the ark kit, but is there a way to get games and things like that only made for windows to forcefully download onto a mac, then me move it to the hard drive without opening it or anything?
