comment Windows 8 shows orange screen with white stripes on boot
Well, I think I've mucked up that copy of windows too far now trying to recover it. But since I can run off the windows disk, and run Linux fine for long periods, It really looks like it's software. Thanks for your help.

comment Windows 8 shows orange screen with white stripes on boot
I can't get into safe mode. The screen changes to orange as soon as the Windows logo flashes up on boot; I've tried Shift+F8 and it just won't work (and I'm rapid-firing it so I'm sure it would've took in all the times I tried it). I suppose the question now is, is there any way to make sure this is (as I hope) a driver issue, not a hardware error? If I have to wipe and start over with Windows, so be it. I just don't want this popping up every few weeks.

I ran MemTest86+, it came back fine. I had recently updated the UEFI BIOS, but I've tried rolling it back to the past four or five versions with no luck (gotta love ASUS, they provide all the versions, and the BIOS even has the flash tool built-in). Is there anything to test the CPU & GPU (It's actually an AMD APU)? Would this be an appropriate use for a stress tester?
