Ah, okay.

So I've just did this in the current emacs-25 branch:

 emacs -Q
 M-x ido-mode RET
 C-x C-f /plinkx:eliz@

and sure enough, I get the same error as the OP (except in my case the
drive letter is 'd:').

Looks like ido.el assumes something about file-name-all-completions
that isn't happening on MS-Windows.  What do you get when you invoke

  (file-name-all-completions "" "/plinkx:eliz@")

?  Or does ido.el never invoke this in ido-file-name-all-completions-1
on Unix?

Let me know what other information I can provide.
