Fastboot issues

So, apparently Windows XP (in my case) sees my device as "Android" while it's booted in fastboot mode. Device manager says "Device not configurated properly" .
LG 's (and Google's) drivers are installed.

P.S.: Please don't ask me to change OS on my PC because I can't.

Sorry, don't have any XP machine left.
But i would bet on the USB drivers.
Nothing else can trick the device manager.

I would try to uninstall all android related USB drivers and only install the original LG ones.
This is to avoid the wrong drive to catch the device first.

Fastboot works flawless on my side, on two pc's.
One with Win 8, one with Win 8.1 and Ubuntu Linux (on both OS)

Broken dtb.img in kernel / recovery or by zero-ing out laf partition (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf
By doing so, the phone can't enter Download mode.

Happy new year to everyone on the forums!
