The BSOD is very specific - is there an update for the BIOS available?

It also said that "Windows was shut down to prevent damage" when he was supposedly booting the installer flash stick, so I don't know how reliable the rest of the error is. But it can't hurt to check for a BIOS update.

What it meant to me is that he wasn't booting the stick, or it's not bootable. Windows was either started already and crashed or bypassed the stick so HD was trying to boot.

But I'm also very sleepy so will leave it in your hands, Colin. Glad to see you're not jetlagging.
