When u boot on the Google screen on the bottom centre does it have a padlock? If so then it is unlocked.

You are entering recovery. Stock recovery

If you want a custom one either flash with fastboot or if you're rooted with a app. Goo manager. Rom manager etc.

Keep it mind that if you're on a stock ROM the custom recovery gets overwritten back to stock when the phone boots up the os

In installed the drivers and I installed the fastboot executable, but what do I have to do next? If I run the fastboot.exe, it just quickly shows a CMD-window and then disappears.

Edit:
I just discovered that, when I'm at the bootloader (I think it's called that way, the screen where you can select recovery), and I choose to reboot, I get the same 'error' as when I try to enter recovery.

Edit:
Alright, I was able to flash a new recovery, using cmd, but now when I try to enter my recovery, the phone gets stuck at a black screen with Google logo and padlock...

I have same problem as wolverine_2k who made the post. My nexus, can't start, I tried reboot and recovery but didn't work. After reboot or recovery I see Google logo, than Nexus screen and that is it. It didn't move to home screen and it stay with lighting screen all the time till I remove the battery. I can't power off it and don't know what to do. I can't transfer data with my PC (it don't recognize the device - only notice that "unknown device" is connected). Please any ideas?
P.S.: My English is not good, if someone answer do it simple please
Thanks!
