Ok, usb to serial has a problem as it does not have enough power feed for flashing, i had same problem with laptop so had to use a PCMCIA to serial.

Also have you un-checked the network box, and finaly try diff version of dream up.

Hope 1 of these helps.

Poke around in the bios, you might get lucky. Also disable all anti virus and turn off all unneeded services.
