    Since you installed Windows around 30 mins ago, I assume you're still in the process of setting it up.
    Please make sure Windows is up-to date.
    Check for Updates, Install Updates and Reboot the system.

    So I've installed all the updates through Windows Update. Going to wait and see if this has an effect.

    Will update within a week if no further errors present

    I've had two more BSOD's since posting yesterday. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM.

    Updated the dump file in my initial posting

    EDIT: Went into the Device Manager, found a Network Adapter with 'Code 10' error. Disabled the device to see if it will make a difference
