I'm also having this same issue. Came home to find that the Compute Stick will not load windows with the following error message:
I am unable to get into the boot menu or safe mode when the device is first powered on (plugged into wall outlet and using a wired keyboard). The compute stick was fine last time I used it.
Here are some recommendations:
1- Make sure there is no SD card inside the Intel Compute Stick when booting up.
2- If using the USB power, try connecting the product with the power adapter.
If after doing the steps above issue persists, contact our support center:
This forum needs a ME TOO function.
I'm seeing lots of identical issues on forums. Sounds like a flawed design. I opened a ticket (since the links that Intel's folks have posted around just take you to the generic Support page).
Thank you for the feedback on this situation.
Certainly we are working on a fix for the issue mentioned in this thread.
Here you can find the instructions mentioned before:

I understand, are you using a wired or wireless keyboard?
If after using a wired keyboard you are not able to perform the recovery, my recommendation would be to check the warranty on your product.
Note: If the unit was purchased less than 30 days ago, this can be requested from the place of purchase, if not with http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/contact-support.html Contact Support would be ok.
I understand, if you would like to, an expedited way to get support on this would be over the phone.
Intel Customer Support does have free phone support for the different GEOs or locations.
