Creating new HD image on PC for Win UAE problem

I am trying to create a 16GB hard drive image on my PC that I can use as an Amiga drive with partitions for the OS and then other files (WHDLOAD, etc).

Here are the steps I have been doing using Win UAE 2.7.0:

1) I click "Add Hardfile"
2) Put 16384 for MB in the 'New hard disk image file" (I am installing OS3.9 which I believe has no problem with drives >4GB).
3) Click 'Create' and the choose a location on my PC. I can see this file has been created.
4) Type dh0 for the device name after the path was verified to be correct in the hardfile settings window.
5) Click 'ok' and leave the OFS/FFS/RDB option.

I boot OS3.9 using the emergency boot disk and everything appears ok but I do not see dh0: on my WB screen. Obviously I need to see this so I can partition and format the 'drive' to perform the installation.

Thank you!
