Disk size first TI disk 18mb or 43mb
When 5 1/4 disks came out they were 69mb or 138mb
I know most stuff on the Texas 990 range and 770 desk top systems

Hi Amd, the link to the photo does not appear to work. Please can you check and edit your post to correct.

Google is your friend. Searched for 'texas instruments wd800' and found:-

http://bitsavers.org/pdf/ti/990/disk/2306140-9701B_WD800Install_Feb85.pdf

Is this the beast?

As a matter of interest, where are you located? I am in Hammermsith, West London.

Good Luck - Mike
