Yeah, it's not a Gayle IDE..
It doesn't autoboot.
It requires a boot floppy to load the driver.

When I got mine (which wasn't the CPU mounted, but sidecar, although I think it works the same), it came with a kickwork floppy that included the kickstart and then it loaded the driver for the HD and transferred control over to it and then completes the boot from the HD. So, you only need 1 floppy to boot your A1000 to a full WB.

Also, the RAM doesn't autoconfigure, it uses a program called autoaddram (on the boot floppy for me) and a config file to add the RAM to the OS.
