The issue came up again. I Dont know which driver it is. I did the recovery, rooting and flashing from a windows 7 VM and it worked perfectly. It just happens when I use 8.1 it does not work at all. I installed LG's drivers, googles, the SDK, the slimes SDK and a couple others. Seems to make no difference. Any ideas? I'd prefer not having to use a VM to do this root and flashing process.
Main issue is when I do the adb or fastboot devices command, the nexus 5 is not recognized but the system does see it as an android boot loader.
