for fastboot -w flashall to work you need to set the ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT variable, where boot.img, recovery.img and system.img file are, on window just use the set command
set ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT=c:\<your directory where the files are>
and then run fastboot -w flashall
I've noticed the too many links error will say it "failed to read" on the first attempt, after that it reverts to "failed to write"./QUOTE]
Do you mean on the first attempt after a reboot?
This makes me suspect usb issues. Do you happen to have any usb cords with a ferrite bead on them laying around that you could try?
Reboot, and then try flashing one of the splash images. They are relatively small, so if it is an issue with usb communication, there is less of a chance of it failing. Try it a couple of times.. if you can get it to work once, then I would say it's more than likely some sort of usb communication issue, bad cable, interference, etc.
Just try one more thing, creat a new directory and put all *.img files and *.txt file there and reboot your system(PC and G1[fastboot mode]) then set the ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT variable and then fire the command fastboot devices , if the fastboot return the device identity then try fastboot -w flashall command
