This kind of Particle wont render out in Software renderinng. It's meant to be rendered using the Hardware Buffer. But it seems you're getting troubles with it too. I'm not sure but it could be somthing related with your graphix card dirver or something.

I thik that the problem is that your multistrek particles have no movement. I dont have maya in this computer for try and tell you but try to change the type of particles for multipoints and see if still the same problem, if still probably is somthing like say Lazzhar, if not you better make a emitter to emit the multistrek with some speed. Also note that the multistrek is for render in hardware or hardware buffer.

boom shanti

Particles don't have to have movement in order for them to render FYI.
