I don't think your issue is due to SDK
Did you correctly set up Fastboot/ADB and install USB Drivers?
BTW flashing OTA zip only requires a custom recovery.

You can download the zip located in this post for fastboot and adb to work http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=51694329
Android SDK is not needed in this case
