It is true, that A1200 users doesn't tinker a lot with floppies and excatly that's why gotek is great. Have you tried install hard drive with never used floppy drive and not excisting floppies.
You can boot most DOS disks (including WB) from DF1:, so that is not a good excuse to installing a Gotek internally in a 1200. I'd rather find a dead external drive, replace its floppy drive with a Gotek and then you have one that you can use with different machines e.g. to boot/install WB.

Installing a boot selector in a 500 even makes it possible to use it as DF0: to run your games from so you can just use one Gotek for all your Amigas.
