    Further and final update:

    Kaveri APU had been found faulty by vendor. I put the replacement in my system and the fault occurred exactly as before.
    As per -wardog-'s advice above, I switched out the Crucial Ballistix for some Corsair Vengeance LP that my father had - booted first time.

    So, it would appear that the Kaveri is rather picky on the RAM it takes!

    In fact after the first boot into windows, I turned the PC off, reassembled it with the PSU in, put the case back on etc, and the boot time to windows was unmeasurable. I mean it was literally seconds. The windows 8 symbol flashed for half a second and then windows was up and running!

    PS- Thank you -wardog-

    A lot of hassle. Enjoy it.
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.
