"The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems"

It is more than possible I am doing something wrong though or selecting a wrong option somewhere. If you cannot find any problems with it, if you could let me know at what point I need to install the driver and a step by step of what I need to do to install it would be absolutely fantastic.

edit: ok i double checked my driver, they do have the 8.9" model in the 64 bit section, i have no idea why you would be getting that error. Maybe try it on another pc?

Okay mate, You have been more than helpful already, but would it be at all possible for you to break down what I have to do a little more:

1. Open up fastboot

2. Type the command you gave above (fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product).

3. When it says "Waiting for Device", plug the kindle in via USB.

4. Quickly Install Driver (How?) I think I must be doing something wrong here at this point. (I am using Windows 7)

5. Once driver installed and booted into fastboot, use KFFA/my own back up to restore.

If you could tell me what to do at the install the driver quickly phase that would be fantastic...

thanks again

Basically you open the device manager and look for a jem device to appear and right click it, hit update driver, and point it to the directory where you extracted my drivers. If it still gives you issues after doing that, right click the jem device and hit properties, goto details tab, and select hardware id's from the drop down list and tell me what your device says.

Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.

Ah so it's not a bad thing for it to be named Jem Device?

Okay great, Driver installed. Kindle Fire HD on Fastboot mode screen.

Am downloading KFFirstAide100.zip from here; http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2096888

Can you please confirm this is the version of KFFA you were referring to?

Thanks mate you really have been a life saver so far!

Yes it is I believe that is the right version. Go for it. Just do a system restore and tell it no when it asks if you want to put it in fastboot since it already is.

We have a happy bunny! Kindle Fire HD 8.9 Restored!

Albeit now running version 8.1.4 where I was on 8.4.6 before but that isn't the end of the world!

Question:
Is this now back to complete factory settings unrooted etc? i.e. Essentially now back under amazon warranty?

Please check your PM Stunts. About to send you another message.

Actually it's rooted, we can't make a backup image without it being rooted. You would have to delete superuser from /system/app and the su binary from /system/xbin in that order to unroot it.

Windows 7 X64 has driver signature enforcement that has to be disabled too.
