Default [Q] Fastboot

I have an HTC One X. I had a good custom rom installed with 4.4.2. Then I made an error. I tried to go back to a saved image of the original rom. It would not load the backup. Then I made the error. I selected Factory Reset on the HBOOT screen. Now I can't get back on the phone except in HBOOT or Fastboot. I can get to HBOOT and TWRP but there is no Restore image.

When I connect the phone to my computer and try to send a file to the phone, I can get a connection with Fastboot but not ADB. To do this I set the Phone to Fastboot and I used fastboot devices on the computer and got a good connection. Now I would like to use fastboot to send an image to the phone. I have rom.zip files but no image files that I know of.

Any suggestions on how I can use fastboot to get my phone back to operational?

I just tried two fastboot commands. This was the result.

fastboot -w
erase successful, but not automatically formatting
can't determine partition type
failed (remote: unknown command)
erase successful, but not automatically formatting
can't determine partition type
failed (remote: unknown command)
erasing 'user data'
failed (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time 0.010s

fastboot update romfile.zip
this took a long time and seemed to be doing something. then got this

archive does not contain 'android-info.txt'
archive does not contain 'android-product.txt'
error: updata has no android-info.txt or android-product.txt

When I reboot, I get the HTC screen but it just sits there for a long time and finally shuts off.
