this actually looks interesting it is an index of all mac products both hardware + software!
i just came across this because my new ADCMirror linked to guide.apple.com
and i realized that this whole idea got merged with itunes + deprecated + dropped around early 2009
it sparked my curiousity and i started to look for it in other forms. had they made a cd-rom? they had!!
now its a great reference to look back on ..  im curious if this came out on cd all the way up to 2008/2009?
this version obviously a really old version (1999)

its in CDR format so im not sure if you have to actually burn it... can it be renamed to .toast?

This article shows how to convert .cdr to .iso on macs: https://www.howtogeek.com/228886/how-to-create-iso-files-from-discs-on-windows-mac-and-linux/.

It says that sometimes you can rename .cdr to .iso (and probably also .toast) directly, but I don't know which sometimes. You are probably better off just using the OSX command line.

Maybe you could also try renaming it to .img? If it is a raw hfs or hfs+, it might work.

I use AnyToISO on my Mac Pro. Works like a charm for just about anything and it's free too.
