Neither :-) those are for the Commodore 8-bits. Your (only?) choice for the
A1000 is a 1010, which is a single external 3.5", or maybe a 1020, which is
an external 5.25". The 1020 looks like a 1571, though.

I used to have some Kickstart disks around here that *might* start a A1000
but I'm not sure if I packed them off with the A1200 when I sold it (one of
my more stupid decisions). I'll look around.
