Unhappy [Q] OS wiped from device without USB debugging enabled. Help

Help. Im helping with a nexus 4 that was given to my dad with paranoid android installed. He accidentaly erased the OS and now I am having trouble getting the nexus 4 to stock OS because my windows pc cannot detect the phone. the phone is on TWRP recovery page and there is no OS installed an USB debugging is not enabled

Thanks in advance

Go to device manager, delete anything that says Android.

Install this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588979

Read this:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2018179

The things to pay attention to is fastboot and the commands.

Yes and no. If you never installed Android drivers, then yes, it's normal.
