I had much the same problem.
I never did find a proper fix & never got basilisk to work on my 'amiga' ( amithlon )
ShapeShifter works fine with 8.1 on my setup
The work-around I used was as follows:
Install 8.1 on Windoze Basilisk -> maybe 7.5.3 first if 8.1 won't play fair. Then copy the HF to your amiga & use it directly with whatever emu you use on that. Some renaming may be needed.
I know the docs for the different emus on both platforms say the hf's aren't compatible but I've never had any trouble doing this in both directions.
The transfer is easy for me because of shared hdd's - I don't know how practicable for you.

I hope this helps.

What ROM image? - I've found the amiga-side emulation can get very flakey with 8.1 even when the rom should work.
I get the least trouble with a Quadra 650 rom. (F1ACAD13)
Some others have missing features/incompatabilities with higher processors - esp in conjunction with 8.*. As far as I can tell not necessarily roms from low-end 68k macs!
The Quadra 700/900 rom (420DBFF3) is reputed to cause most problems.
