Default kindle fire hd 7 cant boot

im a complete newb to fixing mobile devices and my friend gave me a messed up kindle fire hd.He said he screwed around with the os files and deleted one and he doesnt not know what one it was and when i try to boot it tries to boot but kindle file system recovery comes up. Then it asks me to reboot or factory reset i have tried both multiple times to no avail.I have a fastboot cable so that isnt a issue.Can somebody help me with a step by step or link to one.

You will need that fastboot cord.

Here is a system restore tool. I prefer to push the files manually but it will run as a tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1951254

When you turn the Kindle Fire HD 7 on, push up on the volume rocker for three seconds until the screen shows the blue TWRP screen and release rocker and enter TWRP. (you said it boots into recovery?)
If this is the case, you don't need to do a full system restore. You can push a ROM the zips onto TWRP. Get them from the system restore tool.

If you have questions, feel free to ask. The tablet is recoverable unless something wrong is flashed.

Nope, it has to be a factory restore using your fastboot cord. I will list instructions.

First thing is to download the SDK package and set the environment up. Here is a great video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaNM-lt_aHw This will allow you to use fastboot command which is what you will do to push the images you need onto the bootloader.

To make sure your computer issue fastboot commands, open up a comand prompt as an administrator and type "fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product" with no quotes and it should return Tate-xxx-xxx. If you don't get that response, do not move forward.

Once your at this point, download this tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1951254 and either use it per the instructions or extract the files and CD from inside the folder and manually flash the 3 images via fastboot issuing these commands

fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot "image name here" include .img at end"
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery "recovery name here" include .img at end
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash system "system image name here" include .img at end
Now give some time as the system image is quite large
when done, type fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
Profit
