Default [Help] Fastboot: Waiting for device.

Hi, I'm trying to unlock my bootloader and its not working. I'm getting the waiting for device. I'm in fastboot inside HBOOT and it even says Fastboot USB. I am running Windows 8 and have installed all the drivers and it works fine when the phones on but when I go to HBOOT the drivers dont work. It says that windows doesnt recognize the usb, in device manager it shows it and says Device Failed Enumeration. Ive searched the internet for around 3 hours and it seems to be drivers. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Sounds to me like you are on Windows 8.1 and not Windows 8

That's the only time I have seen a problem with your PC not recognizing your phone while in bootloader is when the person was running Win 8.1

If you can downgrade to Win 8 you will be good or use a different PC that is not Win 8
