I'd recommend putting the HDD in your PC and prep/format/check/scan/whatever from within WinUAE. It's a hell of a lot quicker, and it's much easier to setup with access to the PC drives as well.
I'd also recommend using Smart File System instead of the Amiga's standard Fast File System, as it's much faster, more stable and a hell of a lot more reliable.
I did a guide on putting your Miggy HD in Winuae and installing SFS. It's available here:
