Are you certain you are using the correct floppy drive in the Apple IIGS emulation to boot those? That machine is set up so that -floppy1 and -floppy2 are actually Apple II drives. You need to use -floppy3 or -floppy4 to run those GS only floppy images. It is an easy mistake to make, I made it myself testing the system. Check the -listmedia output below:


SYSTEM MEDIA NAME (brief) IMAGE FILE EXTENSIONS SUPPORTED
---------------- --------------------------- -------------------------------
apple2gs floppydisk1 (flop1) .do .dsk .bin .po .nib .fdi .td0 .imd .cqm .d77 .d88 .1dd
floppydisk2 (flop2) .do .dsk .bin .po .nib .fdi .td0 .imd .cqm .d77 .d88 .1dd
floppydisk3 (flop3) .dsk .img .image.po .dc .2img .2mg .fdi .td0 .imd .cqm .d77 .d88 .1dd
floppydisk4 (flop4) .dsk .img .image.po .dc .2img .2mg .fdi .td0 .imd .cqm .d77 .d88 .1dd
