Ok I bricked my Kindle Fire HD 7.... Ive heard you needed to order a fastboot cable to fix it and I did.. Now I just need help to fix it as im not the best when it comes to this stuff. Again I have the fastboot cable and the tablet goes into fastboot mode but I dont know what to do... Could someone give me instructions on how to fix it?

Ok well on my tablet it shows the Fastboot logo... On the KFHD SRT Thing I selected the first option (Restore Factory Rooted With SuperSU)
And all it shows is < waiting for device >
Is there something else I need to do before this???

Make sure you are logged in as admin on your computer. Open a command prompt and type "fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product" without the quotations. Wait 10 seconds and tell me what the screen says.

Make sure your drivers are installed properly. Windows 8/7 64bit need to be put in test mode so your drivers will install right. Windows is not going to let you do this until you disable device driver signature enforcement.
Disable device driver signature enforcement in Windows 7 read on. Windows 8 has different steps.

Both must be done from the administrator profile to work right
Both of these are for Windows 7 X64 users.
Windows 7 X32 and earlier version users do not have this issue

A.*
1. Reboot and on start up press F8 a couple times.
2. Scroll down to "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement."*
Note: This must be done on every bootup you want to install something not MS signed.*

B. For a more permanent solution.*

1. First go and uninstall the driver (delete driver) you want to replace and then restart your computer.*
2. Now go to the start menu and type cmd.
3. Right click on "cmd" and open a command prompt with elevated privileges (run as administrator.)
4. Now type these in the command prompt one at a time hitting enter after each one.
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON
bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
4. Now install the driver you want.
5. Restart the computer.
6. Profit.
Note: If you do this right, you will see "Test Mode Windows 7 Build 7601" (or something comparable) in the lower right corner of your screen. This means that drivers not signed by MS can be installed without getting the Windows has installed the best driver already bit.*

If you opt to take your computer out of test mode, the drivers will more than likely be replaced by MS drivers next time. To exit test mode follow steps 1,2 and 3 in part B of my writeup and type these commands in the command prompt one at a time hitting enter after each one.

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS*
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF
Now restart computer.
