Thanks and what is EFS!?
Guys, thank you for your help! The fastboot process went through, at least so far, without a hitch and I have been able to backup both stock and rooted versions of 4.4.3 with Wugfresh's Nexus Root Toolkit to temporarily boot TWRP to make backup images. I also made a separate backup of the EFS both stock and rooted versions.

What is the EFS and should I back it up? I never saw this on my Nexus 5 in 4.4.2 or lower.

Arggghhh. Why did you use a toolkit?

fastboot boot recovery.img boots you into whatever recovery image you have. Do yourself a favour, get rid of the Toolkit now!!!

Now you have fastboot, put it somewhere along with adb and add that directory your your windows environment variables. That way you'll never need to change directory to where fastboot is to run the commands.

I'll work on getting that setup. Just for future reference what is the procedure for flashing root with SuperSu through fastboot commands and ADB?

You fastboot flash a recovery then flash SuperSU from the recovery Unless you Choose Philz recovery then in the recovery you can just choose the "root rom" option from recovery itself
