The current draw on the USB of the Dockstar is too high on startup. There isn't a software fix for that (except for the sidestep bodge I'll list in a minute).
1. unplug the web cam
2. powered USB hub supplying power to the webcam
3. (the sidestep bodge) install the kernel to NAND and boot from NAND with a good long pause before expecting to find anything sensible on USB storage. Leave the USB system to settle out and the system will never know the difference, although if you smell smoke you should probably switch it off.
