I'm happy to report that my problem has solved itself.
After spending all morning trying to solve my issues, I decided to give up for now and powered down the now useless tablet.
This evening, after seeing ( disappointedly) no replies to my thread, I decided to try one more time. For inexplicable reasons, it all worked. I was able to successfully flash all image files using fastboot. Why it decided to work this time and not before remains a mystery to me. I did nothing different that I could tell. Same commands, same sequence etc.
After flashing system.img, I rebooted the device and viola, 4.4.2 kitkat is in the house!
The BSOD I discover, was due to CPU overheating, reaching temps up around 60 C.
I really don't know what effect or impact that might have had on my problems. I'll need a higher IQ to sort that one out. Whatever, problem gone.
I wish everyone a happy new year.
