Default [Q] No OS Installed, Can't Mount /data [Solved]

Okayyyy.... So, I was a bit foolish and when trying to install CM11, I wiped my internal storage. So now I don't have OS on my phone. Also, I cannot mount /data in TWRP 2.6.3.0. What to do next as there is no RUU available for Mini? ADB Sideload doesn't work either due to me not being able to mount /data. What do do now? :I

you wiped your internal-SD and have no ROM.zip to install anything? happened to me a few days ago

you can install a ROM via ADB (never did this) or push a new ROM.zip on your /sdcard/ via "adb push" and install this within recovery.

Okay, I was able to push the CM & gapps zips into my sdcard, but I still cannot mount /data, so I am unable to install it :/ Any more suggestions?

Edit: seems that TWRP also says "unable to mount internal storage".

Okay, I got it solved Had to flash stock recovery, do factory reset and then re-flash TWRP, and I was able to mount /data and internal storage again

Still haven't been able to find the stock recovery for a HTC One Mini INTL, can anybody link me? I've searched XDA and google everywhere.

Tell me please where did you find the mini(m4) stock recovery, 'cause yes there are no RUU's out there for the mini and I literally got the same problem as yours I wiped the internal storage no OS, etc. and unable to mount data. I'm hopeless tried everything..I pushed the zip to data/media and it successfully copied but as you know unable to mount data so no use. Please tell me where can I get the stock recovery img file.

Thank you in advance.

I can't remember where I got it I'm afraid, but I might still have it on my PC. But I won't be home until Sunday evening
