BSOD first thing then OK on 2nd boot up

Hello. Once again, I find myself seeking the assistance of the good folks here.

I'm fairly sure that I didn't get a UEFI DVD option in the Boot priority list.

Right now, my PC is running fine so I'm loathe to start all over again. But many thanks for your time - I'll...

Hi dsperber. That's a lot of effort you've gone to for me and I really appreciate it, thank you. However, I've already downloaded VLC (portable) and it works effortlessly so I'm sticking with it. ...

Thanks for your time, Golden. However, I bit the bullet a couple of days ago and reinstalled Win7. So far so good. I ran Windows own CHKDSK on drive D last night and it found no problems.

Sorry, which is the 'probe' - the first or second yellow triangle. You say 'don't install it' but if it's in that list, isn't it already installed?

Thanks, but you've lost me a bit there, never heard of MEI. Are you referring to a tweak within the BIOS? The front page of mine has an 'ME version' listed already (presumably Management Engine).

Thank you, maxie. I'd forgotten about that post-installation procedure. Seems odd to me that a modern motherboard doesn't allow you to use a USB3 port from the outset.

Anyway, I've installed 3...
