Thats about the same setup as I have, except I don't have MPI.  The
"-" mean that cocoboot isn't finding a valid extension image (in your
case, anywhere!).

Make sure you have "HDB-DOS translation" turned of in DriveWire.  I
had a similar problem which I racked my brain for hours over, until I
realized I turned on the translation while writing the HDB drivers for
CoCoBoot, and forgot to turn them back off....

Let me know if this works!   If not, let me know which version of DW
you are using so I can give grief to Aaron  :)
